The LOPO technical study visit programme offers the possibility of getting acquainted with the Scandinavian welfare model aimed at service and care of the elderly, child and youth policy, environment and planning as well as the public administration of the knowledge society.

Since the establishment of the LOPO technical study visit programme in 1991 many professionals, administrators, politicians, researchers, students etc. have participated in the technical study visit arrangements with subjects relating to the entire public sector.

Owing to the worldwide change of the demographic structure with an increased number of elderly people special interest has been shown in the Scandinavian welfare model concerning care of and services provided to the elderly focusing on the customised care based on the needs and possibilities of the individual citizen.

Also the requirement for a cleaner environment has aroused an interest in the planning and handling of refuse and waste water as practised by the public authorities.
