Centre of Excellence in Public Safety Management, CESAM, aims to promote and foster the professional development and management of public safety organizations, on an international level. It targets a clear and direct impact of academic research on public and private sector organizations in the field of public safety.

Our mission is to blend academic excellence with practical relevance.

Our vision is to provide a hub for academics, practitioners, trainers, consultants and policy makers for innovative, multidisciplinary research in the field of public safety. We offer and promote professional training and management on public safety on a European level and allow co-creation by connecting groups and stakeholders that are usually unconnected.
