Procurement for innovation in the water sector

Zaragoza (Spain), 9-10 November 2016

Are you a water practitioner in a public authority looking for new solutions to manage your water services more effectively and efficiently? Are you a public procurer investigating ways and means to take innovative solutions on board? Or are you working in a water business interested in learning more about the demand for your products in the public domain? Then this conference is made for you!

The partners of the Water PiPP project – led by the International Office for Water and funded by the FP7 programme of the European Commission – are pleased to invite you to their final conference ‘Empowering public procurement for innovation in the EU water sector’ taking place in Zaragoza (Spain) on 9 and 10 November 2016. The event will bring together some 80 participants from the public and private water sector to explore innovation procurement from the angle of procurement practices, sector policies and opportunities for businesses.

The purpose of this two-day conference is to bring public procurers working in local authorities or water utilities, and representatives from the private sector together to debate and advance public innovation procurement approaches in the public water sector and thus solve local governments’ water challenges while learning more about the demand for private sector products and services in the public domain.
