Leibniz Research Alliances

The Leibniz Association connects 91 independent research institutions that range in focus from the natural, engineering and environmental sciences via economics, spatial and social sciences to the humanities. DIPF has been a member of the Leibniz Association since the beginning and belongs to Section A – Humanities and Educational Research. DIPF is an active member in two of the Association’s research alliances.

Leibniz Educational Research Network (LERN)

The breadth and depth of scientific expertise in the Leibniz Association on questions of formal, institutionalised education as well as informal education is unique in Germany. In various Leibniz institutes, experts from the domains of economics, educational science, ethnology, information and computer science, neurosciences, political science, psychology, social science and subject didactics are researching on relevant facets of education and educational potentials.

DIPF collaborates with more than a dozen Leibniz institutes to make use of this expertise and develop it further. The coordination of the Leibniz Educational Research Network (LERN) lies at DIPF.

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Marcus Hasselhorn

Coordinator: Kathrin Weber-Rauland
