The public health and care research leadership programme is designed to support future leaders in the field of public health and care research to become excellent leaders with a mission.

Being a leader in the field of public health and care research requires more than being a good leader, and it requires more than being a good scientist, it requires a combination where you have competences concerning content, but also knowledge, skills and tools to understand and manage the context.
