Programme Description

Regulations – if not designed and implemented properly - can create administrative burdens, hinder growth, and stimulate corruption. At the same time, good regulation can foster socially inclusive innovation, increase preparedness to crises, protect the environment, and build resiliency. High-quality regulation is therefore key to a successful ecological and digital transition. 

This four (4) day Executive training programme will provide participants with a comprehensive and practical know-how and skills-set on high quality regulation, considering both the dimension of analysis and the practical dimension, sharing experience on how to manage rules across their life cycle to achieve meaningful governance objectives. The programme integrates operational lessons from a wide cross-national and multi-level perspectives, with sessions on artificial intelligence, climate, and energy.

Programme Structure:

    1. The reasons for and benefits of high-quality regulation
    2. Managing the flow of regulation and engaging stakeholders
    3. Analysis of regulatory options
    4. From guidance to practice: High-quality regulation across the policy cycle

The training course will also be complemented with case studies, lectures, and testimonies designed by the Florence School of Regulation (FSR) Energy & Climate.
