Public Procurement Conference – centralization and new trends

25 - 26 April 2023

University of Copenhagen

Central purchasing bodies (CPBs) conduct procurement procedures on behalf of other contracting authorities and play an important role in many EU Member States. So does framework agreements and dynamic purchasing. However, in the post-Covid reality, disrupted by the war in Ukraine, the energy crisis, and emerging climate change, aggregated procurement is facing many challenges.

This public procurement conference – centralization and new trends aims to address new developments, innovation and sustainability as well as emerging issues in public procurement. The two-day Conference will bring together both practitioners and researchers working in the field from all around Europe, especially from Scandinavia.

The first day of the Conference is divided into three panels:

  • CPBs in Scandinavia - trends and challenges
  • Framework Agreements
  • Dynamic Purchasing Systems

The second day of the Conference is divided into two panels followed by Danish and International Tracks:

  • Public Procurement for a Green Transition
  • The Future of Centralization
  • International Track (held in English) / Danish Track on framework agreements (held in Danish)
