Membership and Participating Institutions

Institutional membership is open to any institution that has a strong research tradition and is concerned with promoting, supporting, and/or conducting educational research related to student achievement. Please note that non-members may still participate in IEA studies. A list of IEA members (*) and institutions participating in IEA studies are listed below. 

Member institutions are usually responsible for:

  • Implementing IEA studies within their countries (sometimes with respective partners);
  • Raising funds for national project costs and international coordination; and
  • Disseminating findings from IEA studies to a broad audience of government officials, policymakers, researchers, educators, and the media.

Membership also requires designation of a permanent representative to the IEA's General Assembly, which meets annually. IEA works cooperatively with all our members and partners to help and support the wider community and take a collaborative approach to all of our activities; every member and partner has an equal voice. Read more about becoming an IEA member here

The map contains an overview of current IEA institutional members.
