UrbanWINS CityMatch activity to focus on sustainable procurement

22 November 2018

Applications to the 3rd exchange of the UrbanWINS CityMatch Programme are now open. The activity will be hosted by the City of Malmö (Sweden) from 6-8 March 2019 and will focus on contract management for strategic and sustainable public procurement. Participants in this exchange will discuss, together with contract managers from Malmö purchasing cleaning and transport services, about market analysis before tender and will go through the criteria for the evaluation of tenders.

The UrbanWINS City Match Exchange Programme is open to politicians, policymakers, procurement officials, environmental and utilities service providers, and waste managers, amongst others. The goal of the programme is to bring people together to share knowledge, experience and working methods on sustainable and innovation procurement on the waste and resources sector. Participants in the first UrbanWINS CityMatch had the opportunity to convene in Rome (Italy) to discover how furniture circular procurement and Green Public Procurement monitoring work in practice. The second edition – applications are already closed – will take place next January in Zürich (Switzerland) and will shed light on the reuse of recycled concrete.

UrbanWINS is a three-year EU-funded project that aims at developing and testing methods for designing and implementing eco-innovative strategic plans for waste prevention and management in eight pilot cities: Cremona, Albano Laziale, Pomezia and Torino (Italy); Leiria (Portugal); Bucharest (Romania), and Manresa and Sabadell (Spain).
