The Centre has been set up to strengthen communication and collaboration between the growing numbers of researchers, networks of scholars, and pilgrim organizations around the world.

Its aims are to provide access to pilgrimage-related research and resources through an updateable online database, to publicise conferences and other events, and to encourage new research projects.
