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: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
