Center for Educational Leadership and Quality
Our mission is to facilitate the accumulation of knowledge and expertise regarding organizational quality in education and spread this through academic publications, popular science work, and open seminars and workshops. Research topics includes staffing and career management in schooling, working conditions for students and educators, and how to enhance students’ educational achievements. We work with researchers in educational sciences, psychology, economics, management and sociology in Sweden as well as internationally.
Our research goals are aligned with the Stockholm School of Economics’ basic mission to strengthen Swedish competitiveness through research and science-based education.
The Center is founded by various research grants for ongoing projects from e.g. the Swedish Research Council for Health, working life and Welfare (FORTE), the Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education Policy (IFAU), the Swedish Competition Authority, Magnus Bergvalls Foundation, and from an institutional grant from the Hans and Barbara Bergström Foundation.
Center for Educational Leadership and Quality is a research center at SIR, Stockholm School of Economics Institute for Research. The SIR Foundation is a national research institute for the economic sciences, with a focus on Business Administration in the broadest sense.
