Continuous capacity building is a prerequisite for securing sustainable development. NIRAS has specialised in planning, preparing and conducting training programmes, courses, seminars and study tours on a wide range of topics.
Over the years, we have been assigned the task to organise a number of training programmes for different stakeholders from developing countries and transition economies on behalf of Nordic bilateral donors.
Participants represent both the private and public sector. Courses are developed according to the needs of specific target/stakeholder groups and the client. Course facilitators and lecturers include NIRAS in-house experts as well as relevant external experts and practitioners.
In our approach we emphasise strong dialogue with participant involvement through class room discussions, group work and exercises as well as site visits/excursions to ensure an inspiring; challenging and active learning environment.
Our current training programmes are funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) or Danida Fellowship Centre.
For more information regarding application, selection process and funding please see the brochures of the respective programmes.
