An ever-growing network

We are a group of Public Administration enthusiasts sharing the same passion for the broad world of public sector. An international environment focused on the development of Italian Public Administration.

Make yourself be heard!

We adopted the American Think-Tank approach. This means that everyone can make his/her proposals, ever since the first year of their Bachelor. No experience required, all you need is motivation!

Concrete proposals

After internal discussions we elaborate proposals to be forwarded either to Bocconi University’s professors or to Italian government’s public consultations. We believe in change and in citizens’ active participation. Join us!

nextPA’s motto

Passion, courage and motivation

What our associates say

Marianna Fatti

“In nextPA I met experienced and engaging new friends. I learned to look at Public Administrations from new perspectives and I discovered new sectors such as Healthcare. Moreover, I have the opportunity to write articles and collaborate with external partners to concretely improve those sectors we study. nextPA is one of the best gift Mommy Bocconi has ever given to me!”

“nextPA has been for me one of the most engaging experiences in my whole academic carrier. A stimulating and fun environment where I had the chance to challenge myself and learn. The association has also given me the chance to know colleagues, teachers and managers and, with them, deepen my knowledge of the most important current topics in the past years. It has been a window on the outside world and a big chance of personal and professional growth.”

“What do I see in nextPA? I am seeing a group of young people sharing the same interests. I am seeing a group of young people who became friends by sharing so many hours together. I am seeing a group of friends that will always be so, even after university has finished. Nothing much to say: thanks, nextPA!”

We truly believe that our associates should be free of choosing their most preferred topic. Through solid teamwork, discussions, articles and workshops they should be able to get a deeper insight into the themes they care most about. No previous competences needed. You pick one topic, nextPA thinks on how to make you grow.
