PAPIRUS Consortium is organizing a joint workshop for EU funded PPI projects in order to exchange knowledge, experience and share best practices on PPI implementation.
The workshop will take place on 19th November 2015 in Brussels in the Delegation of the Basque Country to the EU.
During the event invited PPI projects will be presented, focusing on main achievements, success stories or barriers that have been encountered when implementing PPI. Further, an interactive session will be held where all participants will be involved in a discussion about challenges that may be encountered when implementing PPI.
We hope that together we will be able to develop some solutions and best practices on how to minimize the barriers. The outcomes of this workshop will be widely disseminated among public procurers across Europe in order to facilitate implementing PPI.
Participation in the event will be a great opportunity to present your project to other Public Procurers, to contribute to raising knowledge in the area of PPI as well as to do some networking and maybe finding Partners for future projects.
The following projects have confirmed their attendance in the workshop:
Draft agenda of the workshop is available here>>>

One of the tasks of the PAPIRUS project is the training activities in the area of Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI). The main objective of these activities is awareness raising about the benefits of Public Procurement of Innovation and training of procurement and contracting staff across Europe on proper implementation of PPI.
Procurement of innovation helps public authorities to achieve more efficient and effective public services and provides more environment friendly solutions. As the total public spending is equivalent to 19 % of EU gross domestic product, public procurements is an important market driver and can be a tool in market transformation towards more sustainable solutions.
Therefore, in the framework of PAPIRUS project four training workshops focused on Public Procurement of Innovation and lessons learned from PAPIRUS procurement will be organized in Bilbao, Enzkreis, Oslo and Torino in the beginning of next year.
This training is dedicated for public procurers who are interested or plan on implementing PPI and want to learn from PAPIRUS project about the principles on which Public Procurements of Innovative Solutions are based.
During the trainings a Guide “How to implement Public Procurement of Innovation – lessons learned from the PAPIRUS project will be distributed. The training will provide you with useful information on PPI, market engagement, advice and practical tips that will hopefully help you in successful PPI implementation. More information will soon be provided.
