The Leipzig Research Center for Early Child Development aims to concentrate and expand its existing research focus in Developmental Psychology.
To this end we are collaborating with the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences and University Hospital Leipzig on several projects.
On a practical level we have partnered together with numerous nurseries and day care centers, as well as parents and their children in and around Leipzig.
We are in touch with partner institutions e.g. in Namibia, Sambia and Indonesia in facilitating cross-cultural and comparative, inter-species, approaches.
The increasing membership of our center is enabling a growing number of partnerships worldwide.
