Interdisciplinary Centre for Educational Research


to the Interdisciplinary Centre for Educational Research


The IZBF is an interdisciplinary centre at Humboldt University Berlin. It brings together researchers from the humanities, social and natural sciences, and theology committed to complementary and interdisciplinary forms of cooperation in the fields of theory and methodology. The results of our research are intended to instigate improvements in educational systems, processes and outcomes both in Germany and within an international cooperative framework.

The centre promotes the qualification of junior researchers in the field of education, for example through the provision of a structured PhD programme. Furthermore, the range of courses offered builds upon and complements existing BA/MA degree programmes.

Members at the centre are faculty members and professors who contribute to pertinent projects and who are deemed outstanding by virtue of their exceptional theoretical or methodological competences or their involvement in high-quality research projects, which are supported, inter alia, by third-party funding.
