Our teachers

All PAOTM teachers work and think at the intersection of theory and practice. This means that they are both expert and innovator. Our teachers are specialists who want to pass on their state of the art expertise to the course participants. They come from both science and businesses. Our teachers want to contribute to the spreading of state of the art academic knowledge by teaching postgraduate courses.
