From 9:30 am - 4:30 pm including tea, coffee and a catered lunch.

In the 'incubator' on the heath at a central location in the Netherlands, we get to work together. With a pile-driving walk halfway through the day, we stimulate our policy creativity.

Thanks to the small-scale format of up to 9 participants, plenty of interaction and feedback is guaranteed.
