Strengthening the Impact of Education Research



Across the OECD, enormous effort and investment has aimed to reinforce the quality, production and use of education research in policy and practice. Despite this, strengthening the impact of research in education policy-making and practice remains a challenge for many systems.

The Strengthening the Impact of Education Research project supports countries in understanding how to use education research in policy and practice, systematically and at scale.

The project explores the following questions:

  • What factors – institutions, structures, resources, characteristics, processes and strategies – facilitate or hinder the impact and systematic use of education research in policy and practice?
  • How can we assess and safeguard the quality of education research?
  • How can we effectively engage actors in a coordinated production and use of education research?
