European Assistance for Innovation Procurement
The first of a series of events organised by European Assistance for Innovation Procurement (eafip), an initiative of the European Commission, will take place in Paris (France) on 27 and 28 October. The free event will raise awareness about major PCP/PPI initiatives across Europe and stimulate networking between stakeholders to discuss new ideas, initiatives and funding opportunities for PCP/PPI.
A full event programme is planned with contributions and presentations from the European Commission, eafip experts, and representatives of cities, regions, and EU Member States. Sessions will focus on the impact of PPI in Europe, how it can be mainstreamed, and implementation of PPI at national and European levels. The second day of the event will discuss Horizon 2020 funding opportunities for innovation procurement.
eafip and the European Commission invite policy makers, procurers, procurement law firms and businesses to attend. Registration is on a first-come first-served basis until 30 September.
