Welcome to the Berlin Interdisciplinary Education Research Network

The Berlin Interdisciplinary Education Research Network (BIEN) offers young Berlin scientists from different disciplines, who work in the broad field of Education Research, a forum for networking systematically and exchanging experiences.

There are 13 research facilities (universities and research institutes) in Berlin and surrounding community that are part of this network. Since October 2013, BIEN is sponsored by the BMBF (Federal Ministry for Education and Research). BIEN brings together young scholars (Post-Docs, Doctoral candidates and master students at an advanced stage), who work in the broad field of education research from all disciplines. Topics from education research, covering the whole course of life are the focus of the network. BIEN facilitates the exchange and discussion of education topics while expanding networks beyond the confines of specific traditional disciplines.

Core network activities include (only in German):
BIEN Lunchtime Seminar (quarterly)
Annual conference

Renowned scholars from Germany and from abroad will be invited to the events in order to present and discuss results from education research in the different disciplines.

Everyone is invited to our series of lectures, but we request registration in advance.

All events will be held either in German or English.

Events will take place at DIW Berlin.
