Constructive Advanced Thinking (CAT)
Together with 10 other institutes from NetIAS, the Wissenschaftskolleg runs the Constructive Advanced Thinking program. The aim of the CAT initiative is to foster networks of excellent early-career researchers dedicated to devise new ideas to understand and to tackle current or emerging societal challenges. Small groups of 3 to 5 people apply for a project period of three years. If selected, they are given the opportunity to meet for short stays at several of the participating IAS.
