Regulatory Delivery

Online Course

How are regulatory authorities adjusting their policies and governance, and how should they adjust, to ensure that they meet societal goals and promote fair and efficient economic choices? This online training combines theoretical and practical views on how to assess regulatory delivery, as well as outputs and outcomes of regulatory authorities, from different economic, societal, and legal perspectives.

The 4th edition of the Regulatory Delivery online course will provide a comprehensive theoretical background and examples of governance models evolution experienced in Europe, namely for the energy transition, while comparing them with innovative initiatives in South America, Asia, and Africa. During the course, you will review increasingly complex infrastructure regulation due to public policies promoting liberalisation, decarbonisation and digitalisation.

What Participants say about this course

"In the developing world, regulatory reforms need to be rethought in the light of technology breakthroughs. Regulatory delivery assessment is the backbone for incremental progress towards achieving SDG7. This course provides the necessary knowledge to support countries in transition". Dr. Nicolas Fichaux.

Dr. Nicolas Fichaux | Participant of 2020 Edition

Attending this course, I have received a lot of new knowledge and ideas from the supportive professors/instructors that are very useful and valuable to my work. The concepts of regulation in and for the energy transition and impacts of digitalization on regulation helped broaden my view. I would like to thank the course professors/instructors for this. I have also benefited from the classmates who have brought many interesting ideas through discussion forums and live class sessions. I will recommend this course to those working for regulatory agencies or regulated entities and to those who are interested in the field of regulation.
