The project “Science and religion: global perspectives” has as its primary objective to understand how the relationship between science and religion is perceived in various social, political, cultural, and religious contexts. The research emphasizes understanding the relationship between religion and theories of evolution, as well as understanding how the scientific community and society, in general, perceive this relationship.
