This programme is about aspects of nonpositive 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; noncommutative 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.
