The Department of Islamic-Religious Studies (DIRS) of FAU is one of five German centers for Islamic theology. Due to the positive interim evaluation, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is now supporting the Erlangen facility for another five years.

The International Consortium for Research in the Humanities "Fate, Freedom and Prognostication” (IKGF) obtains a second funding period after successful evaluation and dedicated scientific work in an international context in the past years.

An informal get-together took place this summer semester within the newly formulated key research priorities of the faculty, aiming at further developing the new research foci of the Faculty, and bringing its members into closer contact to each other.
