The International NEPS Conference takes place for the fifth time at the LIfBi – Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories in Bamberg. The event brings together scientists from different disciplinesand  from  different  stages  of  their  academic  careers  to  discuss  current  projects  and  findings  ineducational research. The framework is set up by the data infrastructure of the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) with its six panel cohorts and its thematic focuses on competence development across the life course, educational processes in different learning environments, educational choices and  social  inequality,  acquisition  of  education  against  the  background  of  migration,  returns  to education, and motivational as well as personality aspects
