One of HSE University’s principal academic divisions since 2012, the Institute of Education (IOE) is a leading Russian think tank and center for research, training and professional networking in education.
IOE aims to facilitate positive socioeconomic change by spearheading high-impact scholarship and evidence-based action plans for sustainable reforms in Russian education and beyond. Our team is more than 100 academics with experience in multiple areas of educational research and related fields, including four most frequently cited Russian education scholars and 15 visiting professors.
With a total portfolio of nearly 100 R&D projects every year, IOE’s centers and expert groups pursue a cross-disciplinary approach that harnesses the latest theoretical concepts and applied frameworks in socioeconomic studies, the humanities and data science. Today, IOE is into six cross-border R&D projects co-run with QS TOP 10 institutions, and acts as a supervising member for the vast majority of OECD’s educational initiatives in Russia (ESP, PIAAC, TALIS, etc.).
Our networking agenda is focused on advancing cross-border partnerships and international community integration. A founding member of the Russian Educational Research Association, IOE hosts three annual global conferences on education, publishes two Scopus-indexed academic journals and holds a variety of international summer schools for early-career scholars.
Enrolling over 600 Master’s and 35 PhD students, IOE’s Graduate School of Education offers a wide range of pre-service and in-service programs for researchers, practitioners and administrators that are designed under modern national and global industry standards.
