CIFE Executive Training - When Research meets Education

Our Executive Training events are collaborative and interactive courses which combine scientific expertise with hands-on learning. The training events are aimed at professionals and civil servants, executives and postgraduate students, representatives from NGOs and international institutions working on policymaking, governance and targeting sustainable development. Partnering with renowned private and public entities such as the Deutsche Institut für Entwicklung (DIE) and Instituto Mora, we invite prominent experts from around the world to deliver courses via online webinars tailored to specific policy and governance fields with a long term impact: Digitalisation, Sustainable Finance & Economics, Demographics, and EU & Global Geopolitics.
Each training event combines knowledge transfer with practical case-study sessions and skills sharing.
