General News - 11/04/2019

In many cases, those new implementing partners act as contracting authorities applying their own procurement procedures. The multiplication of delivery methods, procedures and partners have important implications for the European private sector.

The key purpose of the morning session of this seminar is to inform European companies about new methods of implementation, such as delegated cooperation and blending and the opportunities they offer to them. Speakers from the European Commission will also explain to the audience the structure of the new External Action budget and instruments that are being negotiated in the Council for the next financial framework (2021-2027).

Also, for companies with no prior experience with the EU external action instruments, or for those who would like to refresh knowledge of European funding procedures, an introductory workshop shall be offered at the beginning of the seminar.

During the afternoon session, participating companies will be able to hold B2B meetings so that they can identify potential partners for future tenders. They will also have the opportunity to approach some of the speakers bilaterally in order to discuss with them procurement procedures and uses of each contracting authority.

Target audience:  European companies active in the following sectors: agriculture & rural development, education & training, energy, environment, financial services, industry, information technology & communications, legal services, private sector development, social & cultural services, toruism, trade, urban development, transport, water
