The ZSBH - A brief introduction

The Center for School, Education, and Higher Education Research (ZSBH) is a central research facility of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz that is funded by the Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Weiterbildung und Kultur des Landes Rheinland-Pfalz (Ministry of Science, Further Education and Culture of Rhineland-Palatinate). The Center bundles the different expertise of JGU into three research pillars: school, education and higher education. We support strategic networking, academic exchange among researchers and scholars and thus contribute to profile building of the three pillars. This is primarily accomplished through the initial funding and planning of collaborative research projects and through the support of researchers/groups of researchers in many different ways (with regard to factors of organization, methodology and funding) during the initial approval of and undertaking of fundamental-theoretical and empirical research projects. The Center is the point of contact for all questions and concerns about the three pillars and pools the expertise of JGU that exists in different subjects. Depending on the research topic in question, the Center works together with other research institutes both at JGU and beyond.
