Kurt Lewin Institute

The Kurt Lewin Institute (KLI) is a centre for graduate training and research focusing on the analysis of the psychological factors contributing to the shaping of social behaviour.

The KLI is based on the collaborative input of psychologists working in five Dutch Universities, namely VU University Amsterdam (VU), Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA), Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (RuG), Universiteit Leiden (UL) and Utrecht University (UU).

The general objective of the KLI is to stimulate and strengthen research in social psychology and its applications.

To this end, the KLI offers a 4-year inter-university graduate teaching and training program. Ph.D. students following this program participate in specialist and general courses throughout the 4-year period.

NWO grant for the KLI

The Kurt Lewin Institute recently acquired a grant of 800.000 Euro’s from the Graduate Programme 2011 of the Netherlands National Science Foundation (NWO), to appoint Ph.D candidates.
