Centrum für Angewandte Politikforschung

Center for Applied Policy Research ‒ CAP

Munich, Germany

CAP, affiliated with Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, uses its unique working methods in applied policy research to close the gap between the political and academic sectors. CAP draws its operating funds from projects and partnerships with foundations, government institutions, and various forms of cooperation and brings together academic understanding in order to define strategies and options for current issues in politics. CAP's research groups and projects combine international and interdisciplinary analysis with concrete suggestions for political practice. CAP uses this approach to advise political leaders on decisions concerning a wide range of issues and communicates the results of its work to the public and a large number of opinion shapers via publications and the Internet.
