In the decades to come, the potential labor supply of developed countries will be subjected to systematic, long-term transformations caused by demographic changes and by an ever increasing knowledge intensity. Therefore, human resource management will become more decisive than ever to stay competitive. The field "Managing Human Resources and Education" tackles these challenges and contributes to their solutions with innovative research methods and data sets. On the one hand, we focus on questions how to effectively and efficiently adapt Human Resource Management measures to adapt to future challenges. This comprises questions such as recruitment, qualification, promotion, lay-offs, lifelong learning and work organization. On the other hand, we focus on questions of how to manage educational careers and how to manage educational institutions effectively and efficiently.
