About our Centre

The Centre for Advanced Study (CAS) at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters is an independent research foundation funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research. The Centre is located in Oslo, Norway.

The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA)

CAS´s mission is to further excellent blue-sky research within and across the fields of natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. By providing our scholars with optimal working facilities and uninterrupted time for research, we pave the way for ground-breaking scientific results. 

CAS believes that research is most successful when carried out in international teams. Therefore, we provide funding for research groups working together on a common project, which is initiated and led by applicants from Norwegian partner institutions. 

Established researchers can apply for funding through our CAS Research Grant, while the Young CAS Grant is designed for early-career researchers.

Since opening in 1992, CAS has hosted over 100 research projects and 1 300 scholars. Our goal is to provide scholars with an intellectually stimulating experience in an international, interdisciplinary research environment.
