We are happy to invite all junior researchers of EARLI to present their research at the 23rd pre-conference of the Junior Resarchers of EARLI. We would like to encourage you to submit your research to the JURE conference in order to:

  • Share your research among other researchers
  • Discuss and get useful feedback from international experts in the field of learning and instruction
  • Becoming a part of the network of young researchers in your field.


Junior Researchers Thinking Tomorrow's Education

In times of constant changes, the future is a moving target - difficult to predict and prepare for. Yet, education is doing just that. At the 18th biennial EARLI Conference and the accompanying 23rd Conference of the Junior Researchers of EARLI, researchers in learning and instruction from all over the world come together to discuss current research findings. In order to think tomorrow’s education and education research, it is crucial to relate new findings to what we already know and elaborate how this will help foster sustainable learning processes and navigating what is yet to come.

This is specifically true for junior researchers participating in the 23rd Conference of the JURE Conference. Together with their fellows, junior researchers will exchange ideas and experiences and develop a fresh new view on ways of exploring what it takes to enable successful learning and instruction in different contexts.


Willkommen in Aachen– Welcome to Aachen!

Located in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany’s westernmost city offers a rich history and cultural, archeological and architectural heritage.

Characterised by winding alleys flanked by baroque buildings and overlooked by its famous UNESCO world heritage Cathedral, the city was the seat of Charlemagne, sometimes referred to as the “Father of Europe”. He can be considered as one of the first persons who helped to mold a collective European historical thinking.

Located on the three country corner, where the borders of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands meet, Aachen is a popular tourist destination, easily reached by train and car. There are a myriad of airports to choose from spread across several countries – Maastricht-Aachen (NL), Cologne, Frankfurt and Düsseldorf (DE) or Brussels (BE) – each of which offer a good railway connection to the city. Aachen counts approximately 45,000 students on a population of 258,000. As a high-tech city, it is involved in several cross-border knowledge region initiatives such as the ELAt (triangle Eindhoven – Leuven – Aachen).

JURE 2019 will be hosted by RWTH Aachen University.


Due to a possible clash with the Formula 1 in Spa-Francorchamps (BE) which takes place at the end of August, EARLI has decided to move its conference a bit earlier, now taking place from August 10th-11th (JURE 2019) and 12th- 16th (EARLI 2019).

The first call for JURE 2019 can be found here.
We welcome the following submission types:



Paper sessions involve 3 conceptually linked papers which are presented and discussed. Paper sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes. Three presenters are given 20 minutes presentation time followed by 5 minutes for questions. At the end of all presentations there is a 15-minute open discussion.



Interactive poster sessions offer researchers the chance to present their work in a visual format and offer more opportunities for interaction and discussion. Poster sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes. Each poster is introduced with a brief oral presentation (max. 3 minutes), after which therewill be time to freely walk from poster to poster. Materials for fixing posters on the walls or poster boards will be provided.


Round Table


Roundtable sessions offer the opportunity to discuss outcomes as well as the design of research projects or research in progress. Each round table session will consist of up to 3 conceptually linked projects.Each presenter has five minutes to introduce his/her project and raise one or two open questions. Twenty-five minutes are intended for discussion.
