Study trips


Sometimes it is useful to have a look ‘from outside’, to be able to translate the acquired insights to one’s own policy and implementation context. Hence, a mirror for reflection. With this purpose, Magazijn13 organizes study trips - both in- and outside Europe.

Recent trips have been to Australia in the Spring 2008, and to Edinburgh and Glasgow in the Autumn 2009.
Groups consist of (senior) officials from Dutch government organizations, sometimes politicians, representatives from private service providers and knowledge institutes. Insights and experiences that are acquired during the trip are discussed within the group, and often this results in ideas that are applied in the Dutch context afterwards.

In March 2010 a study trip to Australia and New Zealand is scheduled, that will take us to Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington. The theme of the trip is ‘Fit for Work’.
