The MIDA project is to train 15 creative, entrepreneurial, and innovative researchers in social and human sciences through an interdisciplinary research programme, whose main objectives are to understand the tremendous influence that digitisation and technological innovations have on Islam.
Entailing breakthrough developments in many different disciplines, the MIDA project is interdisciplinary, inter-sectoral and, naturally, international, with regard to not only the participants involved (6 countries), but also the origin of the future Early Stage Researchers, and the issues dealt with.
The MIDA project is to develop a lasting interdisciplinary network of European researchers to address critical, social and political issues. The implications of digitisation for Islam as religious practice and as a field of study are diverse, complex, and gender-related.
The network involves 25 Interacting Participants from academic units, non-academic Small and Medium Enterprises and Non-Governmental Organisation from Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain.
