New speakers for PPI4Waste project Final Conference announced!

Innovation is a key driver for the improvement of resource efficiency for cities and regions. To foster innovation and leverage the market public authorities have one powerful tool: public procurement of innovation (PPI).

To conclude on three intense years of work, the PPI4Waste project is organising a final conference, “Feedback and opportunities for public procurement of innovation in the waste sector“, on 12 September 2017 in Brussels (Belgium).

At this occasion, the main findings of the PPI4Waste project and several examples of how public procurement of innovation (PPI) can be experimented and stimulated in the field of waste management will be presented.

Before hearing the views of both procurers and suppliers on the uptaking of PPI in the waste sector, Mihkel Krusberg from the Estonian Ministry of Environment will give an overview of the main points regarding circular economy which will be developped by the Estonian Presidency.
