Welcome to promote educational sciences

FERA supports educational research and increases its visibility and social influence.

The Finnish Educational Research Association (FERA) was founded in 1967 and it has around 600 members. Our main goal is to promote educational research and cooperation between researchers in the field.

The cornerstones of our activities are the annual FERA conference, the Finnish journal of education “Kasvatus”, the Finnish Research in Educational Sciences publication series and Special Interest Groups (SIG).

You are all welcome to join in the action!
