EEC doctoral programme

Since 2015, the Heinz and Heide Dürr Foundation in collaboration with the Faculty of Social Work, Education and Nursing Sciences at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences has been supporting research into the teaching approach of Early Excellence Centres (EEC). By offering grants for doctoral students, it supports junior researchers in the field of pre-school and early childhood education. The research undertaken by the doctoral students should focus on topics related to the Early Excellence approach. Apart from working on their doctoral theses, the grant holders should gain an insight into educational practice.
