How educational policymakers and educational practitioners in Europe use research findings

01.03.2013
The EU project “Evidence Informed Policy and Practice in Education in Europe“ and the DIPF are jointly hosting a two-day European conference in Frankfurt (Main)

The EU strategy “Europe 2020“ encourages educational policymakers and educational practitioners in Europe to increasingly rely on evidence from research. How is education in Europe today supported by evidence? And what is the future perspective?

On March 5th and 6th, the final conference of the EU project ”Evidence Informed Policy and Practice in Education in Europe“ (EIPPEE) seeks to answer these questions. This conference will host knowledgeable European experts, it is organised in collaboration with the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) in Frankfurt.

Professor Dr. Marcus Hasselhorn, director of the DIPF, will present an exemplary project for education in Germany: Here, researchers, policymakers and practitioners are networking to optimally prepare children for school entry. Professor Dr. Eckhard Klieme (also DIPF) will deliver a contribution on the PISA study, its potentials and limits with respect to education systems.
Other presentations will be held by (amongst others):
- Professor Dr. David Gough, EIPPEE project manager and professor for Evidence Informed Policy and Practice at the London Institute of Education
- Dr. Stephanie Schaerer, head of project management domain “Empirical Educational Research and Quality of Higher Education” of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) at the German Aerospace Centre
- Professor Dr. Dirk van Damme, Head of the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation, Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD)

- Dr. Jan Pakulski, Head of Unit Statistics, Studies and Surveys, Directorate General Education and Culture, European Commission

EIPPEE is a liasion of 35 partners from 23 countries in Europe and further seven organisations from four countries outside Europe. One of the project’s aims was to build an extensive international network, bringing together politics, practice and empirical educational research. Furthermore, the partners developed an online information portal and offered many training workshops and advice to policymakers and practitioners.

The German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) is a scientific institute dedicated to educational research. The DIPF supports scientists, policymakers and educational practitioners by conducting empirical research and providing a scientific infrastructure. Its work focuses the fields of educational governance, the quality and effectiveness of educational processes, individual developments in the context of education and the history of education. Furthermore, the Institute provides offerings that are crucial to educational information, i.e. the German Education Server and the German Education Portal. DIPF is a member of the Leibniz Association.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
