Together with other European Institutes for Advanced Study (IAS), MAK’IT is launching for the second year in a row the call for applications ‘Constructive Advanced Thinking’ (CAT). Open until September 1st, 2020, it is directed to small international groups of young researchers involved in innovative research projects aiming at understanding and addressing emergent societal challenges. The groups will be hosted in 2 or 3 participating IAS per year for a maximum total period of 3 years (2021-2023) and will benefit from their research environment and networks.
