CAS's circle of Members includes LMU's Nobel and Leibniz laureates, spokespersons of the graduate schools and clusters, of the university's collaborative research centers and groups as well as appointed research professors. The membership is the precondition for becoming a board member or director of CAS.
One of CAS's most important tasks is to promote junior researchers. Promising young scholars are appointed as members of CAS's Young Center, where they profit from interdisciplinary communication and the experience of senior CAS members. Moreover, CAS's academic coordinators support junior members to organize events tailored to their career needs and to develop interdisciplinary projects such as junior research groups.
