The research platform "Religion and Transformation in Contemporary European Society" was founded at the University of Vienna in 2010. After completing its first period, an international evaluation team decided to extend its work until March 2016.  In April 2016 the platform could start its third period of two further years (until March 2018). With the purpose of gaining a global perspective, the research platform was renamed

"Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society"

 After another international evaluation, the University of Vienna transferred the platform into a research center on April 1, 2018.
