RESILIENCE on the ESFRI Roadmap 2021On June 30th, 2021, the ESFRI Forum included RESILIENCE on the Research Infrastructure Roadmap 2021. This means that RESILIENCE will take its place in the strategic Research Infrastructures for the European Research Area and that it can work on the further development of the Research Infrastructure for Religious Studies.
The first initiatives to build a Research Infrastructure date back to 2016, which finally led to the launch of RESILIENCE (REligious Studies Infrastructure: tooLs, Expert, conNections and CEnters in Europe) in September 2019. RESILIENCE has since worked on the design of a sustainable European infrastructure for all Religious Studies. This design has now proven to be mature and was successfully evaluated by the ESFRI forum, allowing RESILIENCE to take its place in the strategic Research Infrastructures for the European Research Area.
The placement in the ESFRI Roadmap 2021 assures that the 13 consortium partners, coordinated by the Italian research institution FSCIRE, take the next step.
