The international LEAD network for educational research brings together around 100 scholars from eleven disciplines and more than ten countries. The Leibniz Institut für Wissensmedien (IWM) has been involved in LEAD since its inception in 2012 when it emerged from the Excellence Initiative. ‘We are an important part of the network owing to our research on knowledge processes in a digitised world. The broad and interdisciplinary expertise united in LEAD makes Tübingen one of the leading international centres of empirical education research,’ says IWM Director Cress, who is committed to maximising the synergies among the various actors on site.
