Leibniz Education Research Network Alliance
More than a dozen research institutes working in the Leibniz Association have joined forces to collaboratively use and further expand their expertise in the field of educational potentials.
Education counts among the most important areas of activity in society today and in the future. Shaping an education system and its institutions and ensuring their success is regarded as a central resource for prosperity, cultural wealth and social cohesion in modern societies.
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.
For an initial duration of five years, this particular strength will be further developed in a research network. The Leibniz Education Research Network is meant to systematically contribute to an optimisation of societal development and the use of educational potentials.
