Rapid Response Research

In a second rapid response survey in December 2023, students and a comparably large sample of the general population were asked about their views on the escalation of violence in Israel and Gaza as well as anti-Semitic attitudes. A report on this was submitted in March 2024 and presented at a press conference by the Minister of Education and Research (BMBF) Bettina Stark-Watzinger on March 14, 2024.

Feasibility study

The study R3HighEd (rapid response research in higher education) investigates whether a robust sample of students in Germany can be obtained by involving respondents of an online access panel who are incentivized for their participation according to the rules of the panel operators.
