The new edition of LAB Justiça will enable the training of an additional fifty leaders and project managers in Justice in the area of innovation. The program is funded by the PRR and foresees an investment of 4.9M€.
The Institute for Financial Management and Justice Equipment (IGFEJ) signed this Wednesday, December 6, a protocol with the Porto Business School (PBS), Nova SBE, and the Higher Institute of Economics and Management (ISEG), to continue LAB Justiça, ensuring the 2nd edition of the innovation and leadership program designed for leaders and project managers in the realm of Justice.
The protocol signing ceremony took place at the Porto Business School, which joins as a new academic partner of the program. The event was attended by the Minister of Justice, Catarina Sarmento e Castro, and the Secretary of State for Justice, Pedro Ferrão Tavares.
The new edition of LAB Justiça will allow the addition of about 50 new workers from organizations and entities governed by the Justice area to the approximately 100 trainees who completed the 1st edition. With the integration of Porto Business School, it will also be possible to decentralize the training, meeting the needs of trainees located in the northern region of the country. The contents have also been expanded and adjusted, taking into account the assessment made by students of the previous edition.
The three academic institutions, which this week were distinguished in the Financial Times international ranking for management training, will also develop a new action directed at participants of the 1st edition, named Deep Dive. This is a set of specialized sessions that will allow for a deeper exploration of topics covered in the 1st edition, as well as personalizing the training path of the participants, including a training course of an additional 60 hours.
In addition to addressing the need to geographically expand the program and cover a larger number of trainees, the 2nd edition of LAB Justiça continues to strengthen the competencies of human resources of the Justice services, in the field of strategic management, digital transition, and leadership in a context of change.
LAB Justiça is part of the Skills Program for Innovation in Justice – Capacitate to Innovate – and the Govtech strategy of Justice and is funded by the PRR, which foresees an investment of 4.9 million euros for the Competence Center for Innovation and Digital Transformation (Hub Justiça).
Adding up the training conducted and planned, more than 5,000 workers from organizations and entities governed by justice have received or will receive training between 2023 and 2024, including other training initiatives such as BUPi Envolve (eBUPi), Somos Registo (IRN), and GeoRegis (IRN/eBUPi).
