ABOUT THE MASTER PROGRAM
Science, Technology and Innovation in Public Governance MA is the international academic program focused on the use of technology in governance. It answers an increasing need for a fluent public and private government system that brings comfort in the life of citizens. It encourages a decision-making process based on reliable data, the result of research. It also gives students the opportunity to develop themselves as entrepreneurs for both public and private government.
Science, Technology and Innovation in Public Governance MA curriculum is dynamic, permanently synchronized with labor market demands.
Technology Together with our partners from ITC industry we participate through the Applied Research Lab in the process of identification, research and development of ITC solutions for the act of governance in the public and private environments.
We encourage our students to develop their inner drive and we support them to become successful entrepreneurs of their own future and of the future of our desired society. Their governance and managerial skills are developed under the guidance of our top-management partners from government and industry, from Romania and from around the world. Professors such as Raed Arafat, Calin Hintea, Liviu Radu, Gert de Haan, Roger Hamlin, Raluca Baltaru and many others are sharing their expertize during disruptive courses and extra-curricular activities.
Science, Technology and Innovation in Public Governance (Sci-Tech @ FSPAC) MA is disruptive and innovative in itself, by the straight connection it makes between technology, government and innovation. Our team is constantly up to date with the latest trends and discoveries in all fields, with a focus on the solutions for better governance processes. In the Discoveries section of our News meniu (http://www.scitechgov.com/discoveries/) professionals and the public are connected to the main findings around the world. In the Applied Research Lab, our students are challenged to participate in projects that are preparing our society for the future.
Governing is a highly technological act.
“Technology can bring efficient interaction between citizens and their government and also provide a way for relevant public services.”
“A government based on technology is the future and innovation should be a priority for any government.”
“Future innovation in governance will rely on new technologies as tools that encourage participation, transparency and efficiency.”
Without innovation, technology and efficiency, governance systems will reach a situation known to economists as “market failure”.
