CAF-conference: 587 participants from over 50 countries

On February 17th, 587 participants from over 50 countries interested in CAF met at #CAFCON21, the CAF conference of the CAF centre in the KDZ. In the morning Thomas Prorok, head of the CAF centre in the KDZ and Philip Parzer, CAF expert presented the new CAF book "Transforming Public Administration with CAF". In the following 12 parallel sessions, over 30 international authors presented their contributions from the CAF book.

At the end of the conference, the future of the CAF was discussed and numerous suggestions for improving Public Administration were made. We can all look forward to an exciting future with CAF.

We would like to especially thank all participants, the Austrian Development Agency, the Austrian Association of Cities and Towns, EIPA, Respa and many others who made this conference possible.

The results of the conference will be documented on our website very soon.
