The aim of the module Governance, Responsibility and Ownership is to learn and practice the playing field in which the transition strategist has to live with in relation to the areas of Governance, Resonsiblity and Ownership. In each area legal rules and principles play a specific role and in each of these, the strategist needs to be able to master as well adminstrative regulatory obligations as contractual skills in order to facilitate the development of the construction of solar parks, wind farms and/or energy plants. Debate and dispute settlement form the solid basis for the role in which the strategist fiels comfortable and assured on the process of transition. Self-reflection and learning by doing are proven characteristics of the applied science master.
