Innovation through procurement in your country

A number of regional seminars were held during Summer 2011 to present the latest guidance and experiences from the project partners

The seminars took place in the participating countries/regions - Denmark (Copenhagen), Portugal (Cascais), Spain (Barcelona) and the UK (Bromley, London).

The events allowed participants to increase their knowledge on how public procurement (including pre-procurement actions) can be used as a strategic tool for sustainability, and particularly for innovation in energy efficiency. Approaches for how public bodies can successfully engage and dialogue with potential suppliers to improve the procurement process and its results were also explored.
