Public employees must develop ever greater skills to achieve decisive objectives for the development of society. These skills are even more relevant when you think about PNRR (the program with which the government intends to manage the funds of the Next generation EU. That is, the instrument of economic recovery introduced by the European Union to heal the losses caused by the pandemic).The public employee will no longer be asked to know only the theoretical notions, but must be able to apply what he knows to concrete cases. The public employee will also have to learn to plan their activities in the best possible way and respect specific deadlines, maintaining a certain conduct. It will be increasingly important, therefore, the ability to identify, measure and grow these skills to achieve that long-awaited public value. Through this program, the public employee will acquire the skills necessary to improve the quality of the services of Local Authorities. Concretely implementing the principle of subsidiarity enshrined in our Constitutional Charter. The University of Pisa in collaboration with members of Local Authorities and other fundamental institutions have set up and jointly organised a winter school in “Qualified training of the public employees”.

Target group

The Winter School is open to a wide range of participants: auditors, civil servants, students, researchers and professionals interested the evolution of local government disciplines.

The courses are aimed specifically at the following target groups:

- all employees of local authorities (belonging to all areas of expertise);
- students from a range of disciplines, including law, political science, economics, public administration, public finances, accounting; researchers and lecturers in the same disciplines;
- civil servants from national and local institutions.

Course aim

The Winter School is a new learning opportunity for public employees, for students and scholars as well as for other civil servants and professionals to keep up to date on the latest trends and developments in Local Authorities. In line with the strategy of the Italian Government, the Winter School will open a structured dialogue with the academic world, provide additional opportunities for high quality training, facilitate knowledge exchange between practitioners and researchers and - last but not least - can provide a platform for study, discussion and information exchange on audit related issues, in synergy with local authorities and their real needs.
