Law professor Herwig Hofmann of the University of Luxembourg will participate with Professor Jacques Ziller of the University of Pavia in an innovative three-year project funded through the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships for higher education, “Playing Public Policy (P-Cube)”. 

The goal of the project is to build an educational strategy game aimed at teaching to different types of students the theory and the practice of public policy making. The transnational project team brings together universities and organisations from six countries and benefits from a total grant of over 400 000 EUR. 

 “The project seeks to teach law and policy-making in a fun and innovative way,” says Prof. Herwig Hofmann, “With the game, we put students into the driver’s seat and allow them to experience the complex interactions that occur during public policy making. Compared to the traditional classroom setting, this gaming approach is an effective and engaging way to learn.”
