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, pedagogy and theology. The institute's working methods include basic social science research, applied research and consulting. 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 conceived and implemented in collaboration with various cooperation partners from business, politics and the church. Since 2002, there has been a close partnership with the Catholic Military Chaplaincy (KMBA).
