The interdisciplinary Circle U. Open School of Public Governance is a long-term framework for coupling societal problem solving to academic research in multiple fields with the development of research-based educational offers in public governance.
The Open School of Public Governance will provide spaces for students and staff to engage in policy making with external stakeholders and ensuring that innovative solutions find the right impact for society through ethical and governance considerations.
The Open School of Public Governance will connect to the Knowledge Hubs through the development of joint interdisciplinary educational courses and programmes on both Masters and PhD levels.
It will also develop a continuous professional microcredential development programme relating interdisciplinary knowledge on climate change, global health and democracy with governance challenges. In the longer run we plan to develop other Open schools, building on the experience gained by the Open School of Public Governance.
