As one of the key research and teaching departments at the Higher School of Economics (HSE), the Institute of Education trains future leaders, giving them the knowledge and skills to understand and transform education in Russia and around the world. Established in 2012, the Institute has made the HSE a national leader in education reform and research in this sphere. The Institute also works to raise the standards of the HSE itself, helping the university evolve into an internationally competitive center of education. The Institute of Education took its current shape after bringing together the Institute for Educational Development, the Institute for Educational Content, the Centre of Synergetic Anthropology, the Research Laboratory for University Development and the International Laboratory for Education Policy.

• Basic research, applied research, and development studies;
• Expert analysis;
• Consulting on education and education reform;
• Teaching and training;
• Professional exchanges, conferences, and cooperation.

Besides, following regular activities empower us to build professional relationships and promote modernization of education:
