DIPF supports researchers, practitioners, policy makers and administrators in education by providing scientific infrastructure services and conducting educational research.


The DIPF | Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education delivers empirical educational research, digital infrastructure and targeted knowledge transfer, thus contributing to coping with challenges in education.


DIPF has around 366 staff members, about half of whom are scientists (academic staff). They are listed in alphabetical order.


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 335 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.
