Feedback and opportunities for public procurement of innovation in the waste sector

Innovation is a key driver for the improvement of resource efficiency for cities and regions. To foster innovation and leverage the market public authorities have one powerful tool: public procurement of innovation.

After almost 3 years of work, the PPI4Waste project is ready to share the main findings of all the research and activities implemented during the project’s lifetime to help increase the uptake of innovative waste solutions.

Entitled “Feedback and opportunities for public procurement of innovation in the waste sector”, PPI4Waste project’s final conference is taking place on 12 September 2017 in Brussels (Belgium).

This one day event is divided into two sessions. The first one presents the main findings of the PPI4Waste project and how public procurement of innovation (PPI) can be experimented and stimulated in the field of waste management. It is followed by a session exploring synergies between procurers and projects on innovative solutions.

Participation is free of charge but registration is mandatory.
Registrations are open until 05 September 2017.
