Current Programmes

"How to Teach Europe" Fellowship Programme

2017-2020

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

2009-2019

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.
