Public Procurement of Innovation to be celebrated at EcoProcura 2014

The winner of the first Public Procurement of Innovation Award will be announced next month at the 2014 EcoProcura Conference in Ghent (Belgium). The Award recognises and publicises successful public procurement practices that have been used to purchase innovative, more effective and efficient products or services.

EcoProcura 2014 will also feature a unique ‘Meet Your Buyer’ event, giving public procurers the chance to exchange information on sustainable goods and services with a range of suppliers and procurement experts from across Europe. Meet Your Buyer aims to demonstrate the commercial possibilities presented by a sustainable and innovative economy, providing an opportunity to meet and discuss topics including market dialogue, engagement and business models in a neutral setting.

Online registration is still open for the Conference, which will take place from 24-26 September 2014. The deadline for official registration is 15 August 2014. After this date a late fee will come into effect. A full programme is available on the website, providing an overview of plenary speakers, sessions, presentations, and social events.
