Profile of the Leipzig Research Center
for Early Child Development (LFE)

About LFE

How do infants develop?
How can we support the development of children in optimal ways?
How do children in different cultures develop?
What can we learn about what it means to be a human from the development of children?

These and many other questions are addressed at the Leipzig Research Center for Early Child Development (LFE).
For this purpose, we explore children between 0 and 10 years of age and their parents and caregivers, here in Leipzig as well as in the rest of the world.
For example, our members are pedagogues, psychologists, biologists, philosophers and all other researchers who made it their business to gain further knowledge on early child development.
To this end, the LFE organizes research projects, scientific conferences, evening presentations, lectures, etc.
We thereby aim to support the exchange of researchers, but also the exchange of everyone interested in early child development.
