Public procurement has often been characterised by bureaucracy, but now it’s increasingly being used as a mean of addressing key economic, social, and environmental challenges. Lately EU Directive of 2014 calls for flexibility, supporting SMEs and for using procurement to reach social and environmental goals.
ESPON, INTERACT, INTERREG EUROPE, and URBACT programmes join forces to provide examples of progressive procurement that emerge across Europe.
Speakers and participants will explore how challenges can be addressed at the various stages of the cyclical process of public procurement: procurement of innovation, spend analysis, the use of social and environmental criteria, and concrete realisation.
