The BMBF Education Research Conference took place in Berlin from 12th to 13th of March 2019. In two days, research results were presented and discussed covering the topic “Educational worlds of the future”. In addition to the Federal Minister of Education and Research along with numerous other researchers, the team from our DATAFIED joint project was also present and actively participated in the discussions on digitisation and the future of education. In the course of the subsequent meeting of the Meta project, the opportunity to advance networking within the project had been used.
