Public procurement is increasingly seen and used by public buyers to drive green, resilient, and inclusive development. However, procurers often struggle to implement effective circular and innovative public procurement due to several challenges, such as legal barriers, lack of market responsiveness or preparedness to cater the buyers’ needs. In this context, cooperation between regions and municipalities is crucial to strengthen knowledge sharing during the procurement process. Joining forces can help to amplify market reach, achieve fair purchasing conditions and secure high-quality services and goods in line with the buyers’ needs.

Through examples from across Europe, this workshop showed how and when it is most relevant to work together to find successful purchasing solutions, and how that can be done in practice.

This training was the fifth and last training of the BRINC Network of Public Authorities.



The BRINC - Brokering cross-border innovation through clusters project brings together Public Authorities (PAs), who are looking for circular solutions, with companies. In this way, the PAs gain knowledge about which products and solutions the companies can offer, and/or the insight that their needs can be met in ways that they were previously unaware of.

The BRINC project is co-funded by the European Union's COSME program (Competitiveness of SMEs).
