Innovation Procurement workshop
On 22 May 2014 Corvers and ZENIT are offering a workshop on Innovation Procurement. This event will offer the underlying rationale for Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) and Public Procurement of innovative Solutions (PPI) and includes first-hand information on open innovation procurement calls in HORIZON 2020, the new EU Research and Innovation Programme, as well information on synergies with structural funds (ESIF).
The aim of the workshop is to clarify and demonstrate the principles and the benefits of these new instruments to public authorities. Participants will have the opportunity to learn directly from experts about the process involved, their experiences, lessons learned and outcomes achieved.
The following aspects will receive particular attention: intellectual property rights, confidentiality, call-back provisions, cross-border procurement and cross-border-contracting, as well as monitoring and assessing the execution of the PCP or PPI contracts, based on your demands, which you should send with your registration to us.
Those wishing to attend should register online by 16 May 2014. For more information and a detailed programme, visit the website.
