The Formal Epistemology Project (FEP) is an interdisciplinary research project dedicated to the investigation of the foundations and applications of formal epistemology. The Project combines methodological and research expertise from philosophy, logic, probability theory, psychology, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence. The Project was founded in October 2007, and is composed of an active team of postdoctoral researchers and visiting researchers. The academic year contains a full range of research-based activities, including research presentations and visiting lectures. FEP hosts a regular Formal Philosophy Seminar series, as well as the Bi-Annual Konstanz-Leuven Series in Formal Epistemology. FEP also hosts a regular series of workshops and guest lectures.
FEP is based at the Department of Theoretical Philosophy at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Groningen. FEP members play an active role in graduate teaching at the university, and the project also hosts its own graduate students. For more information on FEP members and activities, see the People and Events pages.
FEP is generously funded by the Board of Govenors at the University of Groningen.
The project was previously funded by a Flemish Government Odysseus grant and a CREA grant from the Research Council of the University of Leuven, where it was based until September 2010.
