The need to analyze the influence of religion on social response-abilities in negotiating transcultural pressures calls for innovative co-operations between scholars of religion and theology in Europe and in countries in the majority world and "Global South". 

Research on religion throughout the majority world remains underrepresented in European research on religion and theology. This is due in part to differing institutional locations of religion in scientific and civil society contexts between Europe and regions of the Global South. The recognition of the RFW University Bonn as an Excellence University has provided new opportunities for addressing these research needs and institutional challenges with innovative transdisciplinary and transcultural approaches. G_NET in Bonn seeks to coordinate international partnerships around three distinct "Action Areas" and the "Problem Fields" identified at their points of overlap. 


Transfer in Research on Religion 

G_NET aims to cultivate transdisciplinary and transcultural approaches to the intersections of religion, science, and society as key for advancement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG): #4 Quality Education, #10 Reduced Inequalities, and #16 Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions.

Excellence in Community  

Between 2020-2022, G_NET will use pilot co-operation projects to lay the foundations of a sustainable research initiative for ongoing collaborative research. The initial network of partners is comprised of scholars and practitioners from Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia, India, Germany, the Netherlands and the USA.
