The Swiss Public Administration Network (SPAN) is a co-operative venture between the Swiss Graduate School of Public Administration (IDHEAP) and the universities of Bern, Lausanne and Lugano.

The doctoral training programme is organised as part of a ProDoc supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Rectors' Conference of the Swiss Universities. It involves a training unit and research units. The goals of the training unit are to provide tuition to all doctoral students; co-ordinate research unit activities; and encourage exchanges between researchers. Research units deal with important current topics linked to the field of public administration, and all have a strong interdisciplinary character specific to the treatment of the field of study.
