Rome, Italy

The 11th IEA International Research Conference (IEA IRC) will take place between 25–27 June 2025 at the Department of Humanities of Roma Tre University (Via Ostiense, 234) in Rome, Italy, and will be preceded by pre-conference workshops on 23–24 June 2025, which will focus on secondary analysis of IEA data.

The 11th IRC is dedicated to the theme "Researching Education for Sustainable Futures" to focus on the importance of education for individuals and societies, as well as the role of IEA studies in making education systems more relevant, inclusive, and just.

IEA studies measure students' mastery of subject matters as well as interdisciplinary areas of learning, such as reading (PIRLS), mathematics and science (TIMSS), civic and citizenship education (ICCS), and computer and information literacy (ICILS). They do so in a way that acknowledges the rich context in which education occurs, including the contribution of parents, teachers, and school principals, and the influence of the curriculum on opportunities to learn. These aspects can individually and collectively contribute to improving education to create sustainable futures for students and society.

The IRC in Rome will be an opportunity for us to gather, share, and appreciate the ongoing and vast work invested in developing IEA studies, improving analytical methods for analyzing data, and using study results to advance educational policies and classroom practices. We look forward to welcoming you to Rome with a poster, paper, or symposium and a keen interest to engage with new and old colleagues over fruitful conversations along the beautiful River Tiber.

We are grateful to INVALSI and Roma Tre University who will be hosting us in Rome, and look forward to a successful collaboration and the 11th IEA IRC.
