Transdisciplinarity, Transfer of knowledge & Expertise
FINO offers a forum for the high-quality transfer of academic knowledge and findings to public institutions and authorities of the Confederation, the cantons and municipalities as well as to Swiss quality media and other relevant public and civil society institutions. In order to ensure that its expertise is up-to-date on a daily basis, FINO strives to be a fast and reliable source of information for background reports and analyses by continuously monitoring news relating to Islam and the Middle East. The expertise requiring independent research is provided in the form of a service.
The continuous, proactive monitoring of social, political, economic and cultural processes in the Middle East as well as of issues of general relevance related to Islam aims to ensure the possibility of rapid and accurate information dissemination. Of particular importance are information from Arab, Persian and Turkish sources as well as their processing for local information needs.
FINO provides expert services for public service and other quality media (TV, radio, press, etc.) on issues, events and processes related to Islam and the Middle East. By establishing an external network of experts, FINO also seeks to offer coverage of those thematic and regional areas for which FINO itself cannot offer any expertise.
