University of Zaragoza

The University of Zaragoza research team involved in the project will be made up of the researchers linked to the Spanish Observatory of Public Procurement, located at the Law School of the University of Zaragoza. This think tank involves academic members from several Spanish Universities, who have focused their research on public procurement, and professionals, including members of advisory committees of regional and state governments. In the past, the Spanish Observatory of Public Procurement has participated in public consultations about the European and national legal procurement framework (New EU Directives on public procurement and Spanish Laws on Transparency and Public Sector Contracts).

Some members of the Spanish Observatory of Public Procurement are specialists in the field of innovative procurements and participate as advisors for the Red Innpulso (Spanish network of innovative municipalities, supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness).
