Research Partnership

Aiming for a win-win relationship for both you (and your organisation) and GUBERNA, we jointly strive in a Research Partnership for better governance in all its aspects.

Are you craving knowledge and innovation? So do we. By establishing a Research Partnership, we collaborate together with organisations on research that addresses important governance issues.

As a Research Partner, you (and your organisation) will be closely involved in every step of the research process: from defining the research subject to publishing the results.

Interested? Get in touch with us!

Your organisation as a Research Partner

During our five-year agreement, your Research Partnership with GUBERNA is exclusive and privileged from other organisations active in your sector. At regular intervals we discuss the positioning, further development and valorisation of the results of our joint research project.

Of course, your organisation enjoys prominent visibility in all communications about the research and in related publications, press conferences and events!

As a Research Partner, your elected representatives naturally enjoy the GUBERNA Individual Membership benefits, and it goes without saying that extensive and valuable benefits for your organisation will be included.
