Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi)
The Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (Leibniz-Institut für Bildungsverläufe e.V., LIfBi), which is affiliated with the University of Bamberg, became a member of the Leibniz Association on January 1, 2014. The Leibniz Institute aims to promote longitudinal studies in educational research in Germany. It thus provides fundamental, transregional, and internationally significant research-based infrastructure for empirical educational research at its location in Bamberg. At the center of this structure lies the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS), which is run by the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories.
