Ongoing Research Projects

The SELF-Project is funded by the Volkswagen Stiftung of the Schumpeter Fellowship Initiative and has been running since 2010, initially based at the Free University of Berlin and,  since October 2015, at the University of Greifswald. Under the supervision of the project leader Prof. Dr. Dr. Diana Raufelder, educational scientists, psychologists, and neuroscientists (from the Charité  University Berlin) follow a mixed-methods and interdisciplinary research approach to collaboratively explore the meaning of social and emotional factors for students' scholastic motivation and academic achievement with reference to neuro-biological processes.
