EcoProcura conference series
The EcoProcura conference series is the only European-wide forum to promote exchange and dialogue amongst purchasers from all levels of governments, suppliers, policy-makers and multipliers on strategies and the latest practical solutions on SPP. Each event now attracts 250 - 350 participants.
The next EcoProcura conference is expected to take place in 2014
Initial themes for the conference are:
- Implications of the new European Public Procurement Directives;
How public procurement can stimulate innovation;
Training and Capacity Building
EcoProcura Conferences provide a forum to encourage public authorities and their partners, such as the business community, to exchange experiences and coordinate their actions and purchasing power. By forging new partnerships it is possible to contribute to making the markets for products and services more sustainable. EcoProcura Conferences seek to generate more awareness - and motivate and encourage people, both from the practical and political sense - on the issue of procurement (at the local, national and international level) and thereby contribute to the world-wide movement of mainstreaming sustainable public procurement.
