Study visits and learning excursions
We also arrange learning excursions and visits related to HAUS’ field of operations and Finland’s public administration. The excursion programme is tailored to the needs of each customer.
International interest in Finland’s public administration is substantial; requests are coming from various parts of the globe.
In addition to expertise provided by HAUS, the programme may integrate competence from different fields of administration and excursions to different regions of Finland, or may consist of a more general introduction to the Finnish administration system.
Good administration, public leadership, e-administration, information leadership, and digitalisation are our spearhead themes.
Active in international networks
HAUS participates in the DISPA network of European schools of public administration, which convenes twice each year and is hosted by the EU president country. The primary aim of the DISPA meetings is to exchange experiences and best practices for the high-quality training of civil servants across Europe. Themes of discussion include changes in public administration and their impact on the training of civil servants, changing training needs, the development of the content and methods used in the training of civil servants and the eOppiminen digital learning platform. HAUS is an active member of the DISPA network, and leverages the network in various ways in domestic training as well as international collaboration.
We also participate in the Network of Institutes and Schools of Public Administration in Central and Eastern Europe (NISPAcee), the International Institute of Administrative Sciences (IIAS) and the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA).
