Institute of Education

Research & Expertise to Make a Difference in Education & Beyond

Established in 2012, the Institute of Education (IOE) is one of the key R&D units at the National Research University Higher School of Economics, the leader of the QS Rankins in Education Russia.

At IOE, we research, train, and network to craft a better world through better education. Our supreme commitment is to contribute to robust, evidence-centric policy and practice so everyone benefits from positive change in education and development.

We boast world-class expertise brought by 250+ research and teaching faculty, including academics of international renown, who have diverse backgrounds and are into various scholarly strands.

Our R&D portfolio comprises a vast range of projects—including high-caliber partnerships with QS top-rank institutions and global policy powerhouses—that cut across educational realms.


The latest session of the IOE Weekly Seminar Series on Education R&D brought together a premier cohort of academics to discuss findings from a massive School Barometer survey of education stakeholders that spanned a landscape as wide and diverse as Russia, Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. The project outcomes suggest that Russian schooling is still not particularly good at nurturing in students the key ingredients of agency, such as independence, proactive thinking, and self-discipline.
