One of the School of Ecclesiastical Philosophy's essential tasks is research. This is achieved through doctoral dissertations and research in specific fields, and is always subject to the interdisciplinary approach that enriches the study programs taught at the University of Navarra. The academic conferences organized by the various centers at the University also contribute to the enrichment of this approach.
Although the Science, Reason and Faith Research Group (CRYF) was formally established in 2002, its origins date back to a series of informal interdisciplinary meetings between its members held three years earlier (along with other professors). At the moment, its fields of interest include the following topics: the origin of the universe, evolutionism, order, complexity and purpose, nature and the individual, science and truth, and science and religion. The group has entrusted its work to the patronage of St. Albert the Great.
