Science programmes

DIPF supports young researchers in networking with the "scientific community", unfolding new and also interdisciplinary perspectives.

DIPF offers different programmes for doctoral students and postdocs in educational research and computer science. Programmes supporting young researchers are launched by the institute itself, by co-operation partners respectively by commission. DIPF thus introduces young academics to cutting-edge topics and questions in educational research. Particular attention is paid to an interdisciplinary orientation.
