How educational policymakers and educational practitioners in Europe use research findings

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.
