CAS Research Groups
offer LMU professors a framework for addressing specific research questions in cooperation with international fellows.
A Research Year at CAS
CAS Research Groups enable LMU scholars to be released from their other duties for a period of one year in order to pursue a project with a group of internationally acclaimed colleagues.
CAS Research Groups are formed using a highly competitive selection process. The spokespersons of the research projects who emerge successfully from this process then assemble the international research group, putting out an international call for applications.
An international group of researchers is thus created in accordance with the cultural requirements of the discipline in question, with the participants then conducting their research together at CAS. The group presents itself and its work during this cooperative period through conferences and workshops.
