In this paper we present a long-term research project that started in 2011. Language Engineering for
Multi-Level Modeling (LE4MM) combines research on fundamental challenges of conceptual modeling
and software engineering with the design and implementation of a tool environment. This interplay
between research and development has proved very fruitful. Notwithstanding, running a research project
over a period of more than 10 years, especially when it involves software development, faces a number
of specific challenges. While the main focus of the paper is on research questions and findings, we will
also present lessons learned in the project.
