Long-Term Study of Early Childhood Intervention

13. December 2016

One thousand BRISE families: that is the number of participants that we hope to involve in our new long-term study. BRISE is the abbreviation for Bremen Initiative to Foster Early Childhood Development; the study will be conducted in the city of Bremen under the direction of the IPN. Its focus is to systematically investigate effects of continuous early childhood intervention. Three departments of the IPN, as well as other members of the Leibniz Association – the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF), the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), and the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) – together with the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin, the universities of Bremen, Bamberg, and Heidelberg, and the Freie Universität Berlin constitute the scientific consortium responsible for the research program associated with BRISE. We intend to include families in the program from late pregnancy to the children’s transition to school. Funding for an initial period of four years will be provided by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
