High-impact R&D to Benefit Multiple Realms

IOE’s centers and labs harness conceptual frameworks from multiple domains while drawing on the most relevant, one-of-a-kind empirical datasets that cover various areas of education in Russia and abroad.

This enables us to pursue high-impact R&D that addresses the very nitty-gritty of what tops the modern-day educational agenda – for various stakeholders and social realms to benefit from sustainable positive change in policy and practice.

Today, IOE’s annual R&D portfolio numbers 100+ projects, including high-caliber endeavors co-run with QS upper-rank institutions.

We lead or otherwise contribute to a vast number of nation-state and international initiatives spearheaded by OECD (e.g., ESP, PIAAC, TALIS in Russia; Future of Education and Skills: Education 2030, etc.), UNESCO (e.g., Online Resources to Advance Youth Safety and Well-being in Eastern Europe and Central Asia) and WorldSkills (e.g., Evaluating and Enhancing the Efficiency of Vocational Training: From Curriculum to National Systems).
