Young Center

Building up a broad network of contacts both within and beyond the limits of one’s own specialty and developing a strong research profile are among the most important elements of a successful academic career. The Young Center of the Center for Advanced Studies (CAS) promotes both of these goals by encouraging interdisciplinary collaborations between outstanding junior academics, and providing a forum for exchange with experienced top academics.

The membership of the Young Center is made up of LMU Research Fellows and holders of other renowned career development awards. Members can call upon a wide range of services, including the infrastructure necessary for the organization of meetings and other events, participation in workshops and summer schools and the management of administrative matters. Furthermore, as members of the CAS, junior academics are an integral part of its broad range of events. This puts them in a position to engage in interdisciplinary dialog with leading academics, which can greatly stimulate their research and career development.
