For researchers

Research is integral to the work of the IB.

It plays a central role in the development, quality assurance, and assessment of the impact of IB programmes and services.

The IB:

  • commissions and conducts research projects
  • collaborates with universities and research institutes
  • disseminates research findings through conferences and publications.

We develop links with education researchers worldwide, and support research through the International Education Research Database and the Jeff Thompson Research Award.
