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), University of Amsterdam (UvA), University of Groningen (RuG), Leiden University (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.


KNAW recognition

In July 2014 the Research School Accreditation Committee (ECOS) of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) has recognized the Kurt Lewin Institute as a research school again for the coming six years.
KLI members can download the complete application in the Member Section.


KLI Alumni Showcase 1992-2012

The KLI celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2014. To mark this event, we compiled a jubilee book comprising profiles of all 246 Ph.D. alumni who published their Ph.D. thesis in the KLI dissertation series in the period 1992-2012. The book illustrates the range of career paths they have taken after obtaining their Ph.D. at the KLI. Please download the KLI ’92-’12 alumni showcase.


NWO grant

In August 2011, the Kurt Lewin Institute 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.


Jean-Paul Codol Award

In July 2005 the Kurt Lewin Institute was elected to receive the Jean-Paul Codol Award at the General Meeting of the European Association of Experimental Social Psychology in Wurzburg.
The KLI received the award in recognition of its contribution to the advancement of social psychology in The Netherlands and in Europe.
