The CIDER-LERN Conference 2022 took place from Nov 7-9, 2022, at the University of Luxembourg, and was attended by 54 educational researchers.
For the CIDER-Fellows, the Conference started on Monday with a stimulating Welcome Talk by Aigul Alieva, who informed about the history and projects of the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research, LISER. Afterwards, the winners of the CIDER Public Science Award 2022 were presented (see news section).
On Tuesday, the CIDER Fellows were joined by additional researchers from the LERN-network and other (inter-)national research institutions. The day started with an inspiring Key Note by Dave Baker from Penn State University on "The Cognitive Impact of the Education Revolution", followed by paper sessions, in which the participants presented and discussed their own work. In the afternoon, a joint trip to the pretty town of Esch-sur-Alzette was undertaken, where two guided tours offered interesting information on the history of Esch. The evening was completed by a delicious dinner at the Kulturfabrik Esch.
The Conference ended with a lively plenum discussion on Wednesday, in which four CIDER Fellows from different cohorts discussed the subject “Educational Research and Societal Crisis” on the basis of a stimulating Input presentation by Anna Vignoles (Leverhulme Trust). Finally, the Conference participants were invited to join the LuxEra Opening speech given by Justin Powell from the University of Luxembourg.

We hope all participants left Luxembourg with new ideas and impressions and are already looking forward to the upcoming CIDER events in 2023!
