Cooperation and networking

The promotion of networking among researchers and the initiation of new as well as the deepening of existing cooperations form an important area of responsibility of the IZeF. The IZeF promotes cooperation between the participating research and teaching areas of educational research at the University of Cologne and beyond. A central concern is the exchange among those actively involved in the IZeF as well as opening it up to other interested parties.
