Empirical educational research, the scientific monitoring of educational reforms or the provision of knowledge resources – DIPF is all about „knowledge for education“. At our two locations in Frankfurt and Berlin, around 300 staff members work towards addressing challenges in the education sector. To this end the Institute is financed by the Federal Republic of Germany and the states (Länder) of Hesse and Berlin.
