The Research Infrastructure for Religious Studies
RESILIENCE is an interdisciplinary and scientific research infrastructure for Religious Studies building a high-performance platform supplying tools and access to physical and digital data to scholars in all disciplines of the religious studies in their diachronic and synchronic variety.
In June 2021, the ESFRI Forum included RESILIENCE in the Research Infrastructure Roadmap 2021.
RESILIENCE addresses the need for a broader and more structured involvement of Pan-European excellent researchers, producing skills, new knowledge, a cutting-edge approach and a visible impact in terms of innovation in the scientific field of Religious Studies.
RESILIENCE supplies access to data and tools in learning and understanding these data, thus it facilitates, invigorates and disseminates high-quality research concerning all religions throughout Europe and globally.
The RI is based on partners who have shared over a decade of effective collaboration, proving its capacity to achieve viable implementation.
Concerning the European level, the consortium partners are the promoters of:
- TRES Network (Socrates Prog. 2006-2010)
- ReIReS starting community (H2020 INFRAIA, 2018-2021)
- RETOPEA Project (H2020, 2018-2021)
- European Academy of Religion (2015-)
The partners are also key players in the construction of the questionnaire submitted for the 2018 ESFRI Roadmap and of the Early Phase RESILIENCE (H2020 INFRADEV, 2019-2021), crucial milestones in the infrastructure implementation journey.
