Research Networks

Solving complex problems of education practice often requires intense, purposeful, interdisciplinary research. Through the Research Networks program, IES aims to focus resources and attention on high-priority education problems or issues and create a structure and process for researchers working on these problems or issues to share ideas, build knowledge, and strengthen their research and dissemination capacity. Each research network consists of multiple research teams and a network lead working together to advance the field's understanding beyond what an individual team could do on its own. Combined, these teams are charged with creating a body of knowledge and assisting policymakers and practitioners who need to use such information to strengthen education policies and programs to improve student education outcomes.
