Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) School of Management is really excited for the opportunity of hosting the EGPA 2017 Conference. We are aware of how vibrant and dynamic is the community of scholars who animate the research and debate in the field of public administration, and the EGPA Conference is the elected yearly venue for giving stage to this community. Our University is all very committed to make its most effort for guaranteeing an excellent organization under any points of view: proposing innovative and interesting plenary sessions, favouring exchanges and interactions during the social events, making the participants comfortable with the spaces and facilities when attending group works and sessions.
We want seriously reinforce our commitment towards the EGPA community. Since many years, colleagues here at the School of Management participate to the academic life of the annual Conference and contribute to several permanent groups, and our willing is to encourage others to do so even more actively and enthusiastically. Our aim is to allow EGPA 2017 being a new starting point for this purpose.
Thanks a lot for giving us this opportunity to organize the 2017 EGPA Annual Conference.
We look forward to welcoming you in Milan next August!
