This programme seeks to enrich and deepen the rigour, quality, and scientific and philosophical basis for this debate. The focus is primarily on innovative scientific and systematic research, but projects with strong philosophical or theological components are also encouraged. �Grant proposals from all sides of this 'debate' are welcomed.
