The Center for Marriage and Family in Society (ZFG) is a research institute of the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt.
As an interdisciplinary research institute, the ZFG combines expertise from various disciplines, including sociology, economics, political science, psychology, education and theology. The institute's working methods include basic research in the social sciences, applied research as well as consulting and continuing education. Our tasks also include the monitoring and evaluation of family science projects. In addition, the ZFG participates in discourses on normative questions concerning marriage, family and partnership.
The research projects of the ZFG are designed and implemented in cooperation with various partners from business, politics and the church. Since 2002, there has been a close partnership with the Catholic Military Bishop's Office (KMBA).
