Leibniz Educational Research Network (LERN)

The breadth and depth of the interdisciplinary scientific expertise of the Leibniz Research Network Educational Potentials on questions of formal, institutional and informal education is unique in Germany. The network has experts from educational science, didactics, neuroscience, economics, political science, psychology, linguistics, sociology, information science and computer science, among others, who conduct research on all relevant facets of educational potentials. Together with more than a dozen other Leibniz institutes, the DIPF has joined forces to share and further develop expertise in this thematic area. The DIPF is responsible for coordinating the research network.

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.
