Council in Norway. The CTCC involves, in addition to the participation of K. Ruud

(director), T. Helgaker (codirector), K. Fægri, L. Frediani and I. Røeggen five

other researchers (experimentalists with heavy use of quantum chemistry). It

has been financed for 5 years beginning from 1/7 2007, with a probable

extension for another five years until 2017. Apart from the senior researchers

mentioned above are a total 9 Phd students, 10 post docs and three researchers

associated with the CTCC. All in all, the financial situation is very good for people

connected with the CTCC; much less satisfactory for other quantum chemists.
