CPI welcomes the inaugural class of Innovation Fellows

We are pleased to announce the inaugural class of the CPI Innovation Fellows.

The CPI Innovation Fellows Program is designed to enable aspiring policy practitioners from the Western Balkans to gain exposure to the field of public sector innovation, complement their university learning with practical professional experience, and learn the fundamentals of innovation methods. 
The Fellowship represents one of the ways in which the CPI strives to lay the foundations for the emergence of a culture of innovation in public policymaking in the region and contribute to better outcomes for its citizens, at a time of growing socio-economic challenges.

Over the course of their three months with the CPI, Fellows will be engaged in various policy, strategic and operational activities and benefit from a full array of professional development opportunities.
