A special focus will be on eGovernment solutions.
The workshop will be held in Barcelona (Spain) on 31st May 2016. The aim of the event is to highlight the benefits of innovation procurement of ICT solutions through the Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) and Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions (PPI) approaches across Europe.
The workshop is free of charge and will feature:
- Presentation / networking discussion on the EU funding opportunities for PCP and PPI (in the framework of the Horizon 2020 calls).
- Presentation of case examples and lessons learned.
- Presentation / networking discussion on the eafip Toolkit (aimed to support you in preparing your innovation procurement).
The workshop is only open to public contracting authorities who will have a unique chance to openly discuss unmet procurement needs, innovation concepts, project ideas, and much more. All procurers will have an opportunity to briefly present their ideas / plan / projects in the parallel sessions. You can already start thinking of concrete examples that you would like to implement!
