FID Advisory Board

Since 2018, the FID for the Study of Religion has got an Academic Advisory Board that meets with the FID team at least once a year. The Advisory Board acts as an important interface between academics from various sub-disciplines of the study of religion on the one hand and the FID on the other. The development and enhancement of new FID services are closely coordinated with the Advisory Board, (new) work steps of the FID are constructively discussed. The Advisory Board disseminates the services already offered by the FID to the academic community and provides feedback from there to the FID so that there is clarity as to whether and how individual services should be included, expanded or restricted in the future.
