Learning, Educational Achievement, and Life Course Development
More than 100 researchers are part of the LEAD Graduate School and Research Network. LEAD is interdisciplinary in six research fields and features an integrated research and training program for doctoral students and postdocs on Learning, Educational Achievement, and Life Course Development. It is funded within the framework of the Excellence Initiative via the German Research Foundation (DFG) and is the only Graduate School within this initiative that exclusively focuses on education.
Our mission is to achieve cutting-edge research in an interdisciplinary context, to contribute to the evidence-based approach in educational policy by securing empirical data on "what works" in education, to train highly qualified experts for research and practice, and to find answers to some of the most challenging questions in education.
