At the first major eafip (European Assistance for Innovation Procurement) event, EC representatives presented the calls within the framework of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2016-2017 covering EU funding opportunities for PCP and PPI. They also provided the latest information on how to gain access to the ca. € 130 million budget for innovation procurement projects. In addition, public procurers had the opportunity to present proposal ideas, discuss with relevant EC officials, and network in view of the preparation of these calls.
The event took place in the City Hall of Paris on 27 and 28 October 2015 and targeted procurers, policy makers, procurement law firms and businesses, to raise awareness about major PCP/PPI initiatives across Europe and organise networking between stakeholders to discuss new ideas, initiatives and funding opportunities for PCP/PPI.
