DIPF is an interdisciplinary institute which delivers theoretical, methodological and empirical contributions to researching education. Its researchers investigate the systemic, institutional and individual levels of educational processes.

Research Data

At DIPF, the Research Data Education Alliance (VerbundFDB) and the Research Data Centre for Education (FDZ Bildung) store scientific data and prepare them for the purpose of re-usage, offering educational researchers a reliable repository for the data they have assessed. DIPF researchers are not only engaged in making data available but also in assessing research data themselves, e.g. pertaining to large-scale studies such as NEPS, PISA or PIAAC.
