The National Education Knowledge Industry Association (NEKIA) is the only national trade association for organizations dedicated to educational research and development (R&D). The mission of NEKIA is to serve the nation's common good by making cost-effective education innovation and expertise available to all communities.

NEKIA Members Are the Nation's Foremost Educational R&D Institutions
Members of NEKIA include the nation's foremost research and development institutions devoted to using research-based products and services to enhance the quality of education for the common good.

* Independent, educational research and development institutions provide a variety of research and development services, including the dissemination of R&D findings and technical assistance to schools and communities.

* The regional education laboratories are key actors in the federal government's educational R&D efforts. Independent regional governing boards, composed of educators, parents, and business people establish each institution's research agenda. The laboratories take the best educational research from around the globe and convert it into programs and practices that schools can use to improve student's learning.

* The nation's leading research and development centers do basic research in instruction, school organization, literacy, and educational policy. They provide cutting-edge information on a variety of topics critical to reforming schools.
