The network

That’s what we stand for.

Education is key to individual professional success and social participation. Education strengthens social cohesion and is crucial for wealth and economic development in modern societies. How can the potentials of education and for education be put to a better use? The Leibniz Education Research Network (LERN) sets out to seek better leverage, at the individual, institutional, and societal levels, for reliable concepts and promising reforms.
