Researchers from all over the world are currently establishing the Global Network of Research Centers for Theology, Religious and Christian Studies. It now consists of 45 research universities and institutions. The Global Network wants to foster their intellectual exchange by enabling doctoral students and post-docs to pursue their research at participating institutions for one or two terms – and by conducting multi-lateral colloqia on pressing theological questions.
Terms of Cooperation
The universities cooperating in the Global Network agreed on a memorandum of understanding which lays out the organization of the international academic exchange.
In 2009 members of the Global Network for Research Centers met in Heidelberg to discuss the details of an exchange of research fellows within the network. They unanimously agreed on a memorandum of understanding which lays out the organization of the international academic exchange.
