DIPF booth at the conference in Philadelphia serves as a platform for cooperation and information.
The German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) offers German and US-American educational researchers an opportunity to deepen their professional exchange at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association in Philadelphia (AERA, 4th to 6th April).
At its booth, the DIPF service unit International Cooperation in Education (ice) invites research groups from Germany to present their projects. US-American colleagues can thus learn about their work and explore approaches to co-operation with the German researchers.
The teams from Germany span a broad scope of educational research ranging from early childhood to vocational education and training. Amongst others, they are based at universities and research institutions in Kiel, Tübingen, Mainz and Bielefeld.
On April 5th, at 4:30 pm, ice and the German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI) are hosting an event at the Hilton Garden Inn in Philadelphia. At the venue, a topic that is relevant in both countries will be presented: Professor Dr. Kristina Reiss (TU Munich) and Professor Dr. Marilyn Strutchens (Auburn University, Alabama) will talk about national education standards for mathematics.
Common frames of reference will be revealed while the experts will also highlight national specificities. In the course of the following reception, participants will have the opportunity to get to know each other while sharing their views and information on the presented and other topics.
International Cooperation in Education (ice) aims to support international networking activities of German educational researchers. At DIPF, ice services are offered on a permanent basis.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
