State University Georg Eckert institute

The Georg Eckert Institute conducts applied and multidisciplinary research into textbooks and educational media related to textbooks, informed primarily by history and cultural studies. It also provides advisory services to national and international education policymakers and practitioners, and acts as a coordinator and mediator in international issues and projects related to textbooks. Research, knowledge transfer and research infrastructure services are all closely interconnected in the work of the GEI. Flourishing in its role as a non-university institution both carrying out and facilitating research into textbooks and educational media the Georg Eckert Institute has grown in recent years to become an internationally recognised reference centre in the field. 
One of the Institute’s principal attractions to researchers from around the world is its research library, whose collection of textbooks for history, geography, social and political studies, religious studies and values education is unparalleled worldwide. The GEI’s modular information and communication gateway Edumeres.net provides virtual access to the most up-to-date information, publications and data from the fields of textbook and educational media research. The institute’s extensive programme of fellowships and scholarships is dedicated to raising awareness of textbooks and textbook research. The institute is committed to advancing academic work and facilitating networking in the field, as reflected in its research award for outstanding academic work and its support scheme for visiting academics. Each year since 2012 the Institute has honoured excellence in educational media by awarding the ‘Textbook of the Year’ award at the Leipzig Book Fair.
