FiBPS - Strengthening research in educational practice

FiBPS - Strengthening research in educational practice


Demokrative initiated the project “FiBPS – Strengthening Research in Educational Practice” in the summer of 2021. This is the first time it has made its own expertise in the transfer of  current subject-specific scientific content into educational practice the subject of a project.

The FiBPS core-group consists of the “Zentrum polis – Politik lernen in der Schule” at the Vienna Forum for Democracy and Human Rights, The “Arbeitskreis deutscher Bildungsstätten e.V.” (Working group of german educational institutions) and Demokrative.  The FiBPS core group organized three stakeholder meetings from July – September 2021 with a total of about 40 participants focusing on the following topics:

Educational Materials: What is the role of science and practice in creating educational materials?

Networking-potential: What are promising approaches/models as well as needs for networking of stakeholders (practice and science) in civic education in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland)?

FiBPS Prioritizations: Bringing together results and participatory project planning.

The FiBPS project was financially supported by the Initiative “Anstoss Demokratie” until September.

We will inform about a resumption and further development of the project here.           


We have achieved a solid result in the area of educational materials: In cooperation with Prof. Tina Freyburg from the University of St. Gallen, FiBPS translated the brochure “Free my internet” to german. A limited edition will be published in January 2022.
