Training Interventions

STEP and PI Training have been developed by Prof. Dr. Michael Frese and his research team from the Leuphana University of Lüneburg in collaboration with universities in Uganda. Both training interventions have different focus and target different populations (see below).

To provide the training interventions independently of scientific studies and university funding, Prof. Dr. Kim Marie Bischoff, who co-developed STEP, founded the NGO move. Until today, the NGO move works closely with Prof. Dr. Michael Frese and his team.

move is a certified NGO for the implementation of STEP and PI Training.
