The conference will take place from November 2nd to November 4th 2017 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. A workshop for practitioners and a PhD seminar are scheduled to take place before the main conference (October 31st and November 1st).

The main goal of the conference is to bring together academics, researchers and practitioners in the field of public administration from all over the world and to create the framework in which they can exchange ideas, disseminate best practices and develop networking opportunities for future teaching and research projects. The overarching topic for 2017 is innovation and how innovation (understood in a broad manner) is currently used in governance to generate better service delivery, more inclusive citizen participation, more effective transfer and adaptation of best practices from international level, etc.

In 2017 the conference will have four main thematic panels:
