PPI4Waste – Regional training in Zagreb

As a part of Task 4.2 and capacity building activities, on January 17th, 2017, a regional training “Promotion of innovation in resource efficiency and waste management in public procurement” was held in Zagreb.

The training was organised in collaboration with other two EU projects:

The main objective of the training was to present possibilities in order to procure innovative solutions. During the planning of the training, the focus was on the following:

  • To introduce to stakeholders new Public procurement Act (Official gazette 120/2016);
  • To present current EU projects in Croatia with common objective of public procurement;
  • To provide an opportunity for discussion between public procurers on PPI barriers (lack of experience, lack of examples, lack of knowledge and interest, conservative attitudes), and how to overcome them within the new law.
