University gains funding for major Governance for Sustainability project

25 July 2011

The University of Westminster has gained €66,000 of funding to develop a major new postgraduate curriculum on the theme of Governance for Sustainable Development.

This is part of a €390,000 EU Lifelong Learning project developing new postgraduate curricula in collaboration with four partner institutions: University of Lodzki (Poland), University of Crete (Greece), University of Applied Management (Germany) and VetAgro Sup (France).

The project has a truly international focus incorporating the experiences of governance across both the developed and developing world, as well as emerging 'transition' economies (China/India/Brazil/South Africa).

Dr Dan Greenwood, project coordinator at the University of Westminster from the department of politics and international relations, said: “This project is an exciting opportunity for us to further develop our research-led teaching in this field that we have built up since the establishment of our Governance and Sustainability programme four years ago”.
