Europe discusses supply chains - Leuphana offers subsidized further education

2024-02-15 Lüneburg. With regard to a hot topic, there is a full funding pot for companies from the north-eastern Lower Saxony region: the European Social Fund and the state of Lower Saxony are covering up to 70 percent of the tuition fees for a further education course on sustainable supply chain management at Leuphana University Lüneburg. In view of the supply chain directive currently being discussed in the EU, the offer comes at just the right time. Prospective students from eleven districts can apply for the funding. There are still places available for the start in April 2024. The application deadline is February 29, 2024.

How to make supply chains not only compliant with EU law but also resilient is the subject of the part-time certificate program on sustainable supply chain management. It qualifies participants to develop individual supply chain strategies - based on national and international standards such as the Supply Chain Duty of Care Act and company-specific risk analyses. In online presentations and self-study phases, participants acquire academically sound knowledge of supplier and stakeholder management in complex supply networks.

There are still a few places available for the six-month course. Interested professionals from all sectors and organizations can apply. A first degree is not necessary. A university entrance qualification and at least one year of professional experience are required. Employees of regional companies from the districts of Cuxhaven, Stade, Rotenburg, Osterholz, Verden, Heidekreis, Harburg, Lüneburg, Uelzen, Celle and Lüchow-Dannenberg are eligible for funding.

Prospective students have the opportunity to arrange a personal consultation with course coordinator Benjamin Sachs (, phone 04131.677-2234).
