This article describes the phases of a design-based research (DBR) process using the example of an economic education project. The project was carried out in the "urban economics" subject area for economic education in upper secondary schools (15-18 years). The research questions, research design, and central research results are described in detail. Finally, the experiences from the project are incorporated to reflect the DBR's specific performance characteristics.
