Reference number 2018-03827
Coordinator Lunds universitet - LUCE
Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 500 000
Project duration November 2018 - October 2020
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

The overall aim of the project is to develop a professional education concept that can help strengthen and streamline the crisis management ability of public actors at different levels in Swedish society. The aim is to develop a course package on themes within Crisis Management based on identified needs assessment at a number of public actors, and where Lund Univ has expertise and conducts active research. Being able to offer professionals in-depth education at an advanced level does arguably benefit the crisis management work in Swedish municipalities and authorities.

Expected results and effects

A successful project implementation entails that we succeed in raising the level of competence of professionals and contribute to creating a professionalization within the crisis management area. At the same time, participation in the courses can create a network between the course participants, and also with the University, which can provide further benefits in the future within research and teaching.

Planned approach and implementation

Start-up is expected to be in Nov 2018 with initial needs assessment as well as the development and production of general pedagogical design as well as specific and adapted course packages. Implementation of pilot courses takes place in spring / autumn 2020 and final evaluation will take place in autumn 2020, project deadline 30 October 2020.
