LEAD Graduate School & Research Network

Research Program

At LEAD, we aim at contributing to empirically supported knowledge on education-related topics. Due to their complexity, the "big questions" in research on education cannot be satisfactorily examined within the confines of a single discipline.

That's why we address such questions within collaborative research programs spanning many years and bringing together researchers from various backgrounds using different approaches, study designs and data analysis techniques. We consider interdisciplinary cooperation a key to progress in empirical educational research.
