As a graduate school we offer both national and international organisations the opportunity to develop and train the specific capacities needed for professionals within the public policy theme and governance arena. We develop and provide several different tailor-made training and research projects. These projects are all personalized to the specific needs and are set in a time frame of the participating professionals. In many projects, we provide theoretic knowledge from a multi-level perspective from leading experts complemented by integrated skills trainings. The tailor-made projects will prepare specialists to interact in decision making processes with a continuous transforming society.
