EIPPEE – Evidence Informed Policy and Practice in Education in Europe

The project's aim was to network brokerage initiatives in the field of educational research and knowledge transfer across Europe, thus supporting evidence-based educational policy and practice.

Project Description

DIPF is a partner in the EU network and former EU project Evidence Informed Policy and Practice in Education in Europe (EIPPEE). The liason office International Cooperation in Education participates in this network for evidence-based education policy and practice, which was a EU project from 2010 until 2013 after being initiated by the Evidence for Policy and Practice Information and Co-ordinating Centre (EPPI-Centre) at the Institute of Education in London. DIPF coordinated the final conference in Frankfurt in 2013. Since then, the project partners have continued their cooperation in the EIPPEE network.

Objectives

The project aimed to network brokerage initiatives in the field of educational research and knowledge transfer across Europe, thus supporting evidence-based educational policy and practice.

To this end, the project partners cooperated in the following areas:

  • Exchange of experiences for setting up Brokerage mechanisms
  • Joint testing of innovative Brokerage initiatives
  • Development of a coherent infrastructure
  • Development of benchmarks for assessing the quality of  research and development of a model for recommending evidence-based educational research to policy and practice
  • Development and dissemination of concrete tools for knowledge transfer (internet, brochures, books, events etc.)

A larger conference was organised each year, inviting all European reserchers, practitioners, and interested parties working in policy and administration.

Funding

The project was funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme.
