|The 17th Biennial conference of the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI) took place in Tampere, Finland and was hosted by the University of Tampere.<br/><br/>Education is struggling between the tensions and forces from economy, politics, media and scientific research. Against the backdrop of the economic situation in Europe, public funding for education is decreasing in many countries. This creates a situation in which politicians tend to initiate programmes that attract media attention in order to guarantee the continuation of their political careers. The role of research in advancing education is being challenged as are the funding opportunities for educational and psychological research.<br/><br/>What is research about, how to combine theory and practice, and how to convince the general public and policy makers of the myriad strengths educational and psychological research have to offer to the advancement of well-being and public good?<br/><br/>At EARLI 2017, participants presented results and ideas to increase the impact of research in the political and societal decision-makers.
