Coordinating for Cohesion in the Public Sector of the Future (COCOPS)

The COCOPS project (Coordinating for Cohesion in the Public Sector of the Future) is a 3.5 year programme of eight interrelated research projects or 'Work Packages' investigating the impact of public sector reform and deregulation under the New Public Management concept. Co-coordinated by Erasmus University Rotterdam and the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, the research is funded by €2.7million of European Commission investment and will be conducted by a team of public administration scholars from eleven universities across ten European countries, concluding in July 2014.
