As any IEA study, the second cycle of ICCS will be a collaborative effort among groups of researchers and individual scholars around the world. Staff from research centers in participating countries, the consortium, the IEA and its institutions, expert consultants and funding agencies will work together to develop and implement this study.
The international coordination of the project is managed by a consortium consisting of four partner institutions:
Australian Council for Educational Research in Melbourne, Australia (International Study Center)
Conceptual development, student instrument development, analysis and reporting
Laboratorio di Pedagogia Sperimentale (LPS) at the Roma Tre University in Rome (Associated Research Center)
Teacher and school instruments development, European module coordination
