    This programme is about aspects of non-positive curvature as they occur in various research areas of contemporary mathematics, such as the geometry of manifolds, including those arising from Lie group theory; synthetic geometry (e.g. CAT(0) geometry) as used notably in modern group theory; coarse geometry, a fundamental tool of contemporary topology; non-commutative geometry; and algebra; as well as the fruitful connections between these and other areas, e.g. theoretical computer science. The focus of this programme is on breakthrough results and techniques stemming from this research.
