Article in 'Forskningspolitikk.no' Highlights CAS' Role in Basic Research
A recent article in 'Forskningspolitikk' focuses on the Center for Advanced Study (CAS) and its significance in basic research. The article, written by Lisbet Jære, features researchers like Bjørn Samset and Svenn-Erik Mamelund, who highlight the unique opportunities provided by CAS.
Bjørn Samset, as the group leader of this year's project Heterogeneous Climate Forcing: Linking Regional Perturbations to Climate Implications Across Multiple Scales (HETCLIF) alongside Marianne Tronstad Lund, and Svenn-Erik Mamelund, who led last year's project Social Science Meets Biology: Indigenous People and Severe Influenza Outcomes, exemplify the kind of deep-dive research facilitated by CAS, while Director Camilla Serck-Hanssen discusses CAS' mission and its impact on scientific exploration.
Samset and Mamelund's work at CAS exemplifies our Centre's commitment to fostering an environment where researchers can freely explore and develop significant scientific inquiries, emphasizing the importance of basic research in advancing knowledge and addressing societal challenges.
