Current Programmes

"How to Teach Europe" Fellowship Programme


The programme targets academics – highly qualified young and established university professors – from (South) Eastern Europe in the social sciences and the humanities to dedicate themselves to research work oriented toward a specific goal: to lend the state-of-the-art theories and methodologies in the humanities and social sciences a pan-European and/or global dimension and to apply these findings in higher education.

Advanced Academia Programme


Through this independent fellowship programme CAS ensures possibilities for conducting independent research in an international, interdisciplinary environment, without restrictions in the selected areas of study - an approach intended to stimulate excellent scholarship at the highest international level.

Current Fellows

In 2017/2018 CAS hosts 19 research fellows from 8 countries in the framework of Advanced Academia programme. Another 6 scholars are involved in the How to Teach Europe in the XXI Century programme and 1 researcher in a new fellowship project, targeting artists from various disciplinary backgrounds.
