7/3/2018

Under the umbrella of “Research in Germany”, the German Research Foundation (DFG) is organizing a joint appearance of various participants of the German research landscape at this years’ ISA World Congress in Toronto, Canada, taking place from July 15 to 21, 2018: funding organizations, six panel studies—among them the National Education Panel Study (NEPS)—, the German Data Forum (RatSWD), as well as numerous researchers and initiatives from different German research institutes.

At the joint information booth, the German delegation will provide information about funding, cooperation, and research opportunities in Germany. Furthermore, there will be a dedicated section focusing on refugees and migration research. The Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories participates with two talks about the refugee study “ReGES–Refugees in the German Educational System”.
