Innovation in education through research

The Netherlands Initiative for Educational Research (NRO) contributes to innovation and improvements in education by coordinating and funding educational research and by facilitating the connections between educational practice and research.

Our focus is on education research: whether that examines the class (processes and learning outcomes), school (organisation and effectiveness) or the entire of the Netherlands (education and society). NRO encourages and facilitates the dissemination of all knowledge emerging from research into educational practice.
