"In our area of research, the University of Potsdam is already considered one of the most interesting places for undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate study in Europe. And we have only just begun!"

Academic Environment

WIPCAD’s research program builds on very strong foundations in Potsdam, including a very good track -record in interdisciplinary co-operation, teaching portfolios and research and consultancy expertise in public administration as well as the international reputation and visibility of participating researchers and their integration in local, regional, national and international networks.

The Focus Area Public Policy and Management is represented and coordinated by the Potsdam Centrum for Policy and Management (PCPM) at the University’s Department of Economics and Social Sciences.
