Workshop: Public Procurement of Bio-based Products – Chances and Challenges
The Commission Expert Group for Bio-based Products (Expert Group) has as one of its tasks to propose to the European Commission demand-side industrial policy actions conducive to the market uptake of bio-based products and processes, including public procurement and other market pull measures.
For this purpose the Expert Group has been gathering insights, experiences and best practices regarding public procurement programs from policy makers, industry and public procurers. These are used as input for the development of concrete recommendations for setting up policy actions.
The workshop will present and gather feedback on the draft recommendations and findings, which have been elaborated by the Working Group on Public Procurement. The aim is to receive critical input and a “reality check” by national and regional public procurers from different Member States, in order to make sure that the policy recommendations are clear, effective and feasible.
