One of the main activities of this ‘Islam & Science’ project is the organization of a series of educational/training workshops of three days in various countries: Algeria, Jordan, Malaysia, Morocco, the United Arab Emirates, and Tunisia, as well as France and the United Kingdom. Twenty to twenty-five participants (students and young researchers) take part in each event.
Workshops aim at familiarizing the participants with the fields of ‘Science & Islam’ and ‘Science & Religion’, with their themes, their main voices, their scholarly productions (essential books, journals, websites, etc.) and, more importantly, at enabling the participants to follow the debates and, hopefully to contribute to them in the near future (after the summer school).
Each one of the workshops is organized in partnership with important institutions and personalities of the Muslim world, which helps guaranty that the workshop(s) – and the project overall – will have a significant impact both locally and globally.
