EU GPP Helpdesk webinar to focus on engaging the market

A webinar to discuss how public procurers can work with the market to develop more environmentally friendly solutions will be held by the EU GPP Helpdesk on 24 November 2015 between 14.30 and 16.00 CET. The online meeting will look at how effective market engagement can enable procurers to gain a better understanding of what goods and services are currently available, and what suppliers are capable of offering in the future.

A series of presentations will be given by noted speakers from across Europe, including Abby Semple, Legal Expert, Public Procurement Analysis, and a representative of the award-winning Federal Procurement Agency of Austria. To provide the private sector’s perspective, the meeting will be addressed by Aren Mijs, IMS Medical, The Netherlands. Michael Sorensen of the European Commission’s Directorate General for the Environment will introduce the webinar.

The webinar will also look at key legal issues which must be considered before, during and after a market engagement process, and how market engagement can help businesses to meet the upcoming needs of public authorities. Participation is free of cost and open to all interested parties.
