Abstract

This article outlines the concept and organization of joint research and development at the two experimental schools (Laborschule and Oberstufen-Kolleg) in Bielefeld. Both schools have research departments belonging to Bielefeld University. Teachers from the schools and researchers from University cooperate in joint research and development projects. Following a brief historical overview, we describe the conditions underlying this concept of permanent cooperation and illustrate them, using two examples of research projects.
