HOOP project seeks experts for Legal Advisory Board

The EU-funded HOOP project offers a great opportunity to join a forefront group of legal experts in public procurement for urban circular bioeconomy at European level. HOOP  is aimed at fostering investment in urban circular bioeconomy in eight Europan pilot cities and regions. As part of the assistance to these Lighthouse cities, it is coordinating a Legal Advisory Board (LAB). It is now seeking lawyers with experience on the legal and procurement frameworks in the 5 HOOP procuring countries (Spain, The Netherlands, Germany, Norway and Finland) to work for the HOOP LAB.

The selected candidates will be expected to work estimated 12 working days maximum (from March 2023 to August 2024), which includes mainly remote work and meetings. This work will entail:
