The Hector Research Institute of Education Sciences and Psychology is a research institute within the University of Tübingen, where over 90 academics from twelve nations work on fundamental, socially relevant questions of education. This is made possible by the generous support of the Hector Foundation II.

The researchers systematically draw on the wealth of knowledge from psychology, educational science and related disciplines and use the best available methods to make reliable statements about teaching-learning processes and their consequences.
