Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) at the University of Bamberg becomes official member of the Leibniz Association as of January 1, 2014

12/5/2013
The Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories at the University of Bamberg, which has been founded primarily for this purpose, will run the National Educational Panel Study in future. The induction of LIfBi into the Leibniz Association ensures a stable and long-term future for NEPS, which has been described as a “worldwide unique research infrastructure” by the German Science Council in its statement of April 26, 2013. Only five years after its foundation, NEPS will have turned from a temporary research project into an infrastructure facility permanently financed under the funding agreement between the German Federal and State Governments.
