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.

A fried breakfast food popular in Spain provided the inspiration for the development of doughnut-shaped droplets that may provide scientists with a new approach for studying fundamental issues in physics, mathematics and materials.
The doughnut-shaped droplets, a shape known as toroidal, are formed from two dissimilar liquids using a simple rotating stage and an injection needle. About a millimeter in overall size, the droplets are produced individually, their shapes maintained by a surrounding springy material made of polymers.
Droplets in this toroidal shape made ...

Innsbruck physicists led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller experimentally gained a deep insight into the nature of quantum mechanical phase transitions.
They are the first scientists that simulated the competition between two rival dynamical processes at a novel type of transition between two quantum mechanical orders. They have published the results of their work in the journal Nature Physics.

Researchers have shown that, by using global positioning systems (GPS) to measure ground deformation caused by a large underwater earthquake, they can provide accurate warning of the resulting tsunami in just a few minutes after the earthquake onset.
For the devastating Japan 2011 event, the team reveals that the analysis of the GPS data and issue of a detailed tsunami alert would have taken no more than three minutes. The results are published on 17 May in Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences, an open access journal of ...
