One of the tasks of the PAPIRUS project is the training activities in the area of Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI). The main objective of these activities is awareness raising about the benefits of Public Procurement of Innovation and training of procurement and contracting staff across Europe on proper implementation of PPI.
The training takes the form of face to face workshops to be held in Spain (Bilbao), Norway (Oslo), Germany (Enzkreis) and Italy (Turin). During the workshops the participating public procurers will have a chance to learn from live cases - the public procurements of innovative solutions implemented within PAPIRUS project.
By participating in the training workshops public procurers will find out how and why to procure innovation, what are the main challenges and barriers that may be encountered in the process as well as best practices from the PAPIRUSS project.
The training workshops has been already held in Bilbao. More infromation is available on: http://papirus-project.com/index.php/home/10-english/157-new-models-of-public-procurement-public-green-procurement-and-public-procurement-of-innovation
