Digital Leadership Scholarship

Digitalisation is undisputedly one of the main challenges of our time. Full of opportunities but also of pitfalls – this sweeping change is transforming political decision-making in ways complex and manifold. As public administration and regulatory bodies are slow to adapt, the ability to understand and shape this process is crucial for leaders and decision-makers across sectors and industries. The Digital Leadership Scholarship is intended for those who wish to acquire the tools necessary for analysing and responding to these challenges.
