To achieve this, structures and performances in different areas are observed through the prism of specific indicators along the educational and life course, ranging from the elementary sector to school and vocational training to higher education institutions and continuing education.

The Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories is a contributing member of the authoring group for the first time.
