Annually, the Wageningen UR open course programme for mid-career professionals provides some six hundred individuals with the opportunity to update their competencies and insights. EL&I co-finances this course programme with the aim to maintain close linkages with international policy priorities and to support course innovation and development. This report provides an overview of the outputs over 2011 in relation to the commitment number 140008726. Due to a budget reduction in the Netherlands Fellowship Programme total participant numbers were lower compared to previous years. Yet the demand driven programme was highly successful with approximately four hundred and fifty participants from some 23 courses. Individual course developments are indicated, giving specific attention to the four new courses and the annex provides the conclusions of a study exploring new course models and partnership development with our Southern partner organisations.
