In September 2016, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education (BMB) established a Special Research Area ‚Interreligiosity’ at the Private University College for Teacher Education Vienna/Krems (KPH). The Research Area is supposed to provide an empirical context-sensitive basis for enhancing interreligious competence in teacher education. It is intensely cooperating with Prof. Dr. Anne Koch at the Zentrum Interreligiöses Lernen | Migrationspädagogik | Mehrsprachigkeit (Opens external link in new windowZIMT) of the Private University College of Education, Linz (PH Linz).
