Description
The European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) is organising an ‘Introductory and Practitioners’ Seminar: European Public Procurement Rules, Policy and Practice’ which will take place on 14-17 February 2017. The four-day programme will begin with an ‘Introductory Seminar: European Public Procurement for Newcomers to Procurement’, which will be held on 14 February 2017. The three-day ‘Practitioners’ Seminar: European Public Procurement Rules, Policy and Practice’ will commence on the following day.

The seminar will cover the principles and procedures of European public procurement policy, focusing on the Public Procurement Directives and relevant case law. This comprehensive seminar is based on the Public Procurement Directive 2014/24/EU, the Utilities Directive 2014/25/EU and the Directive 2014/23/EU on the award of concession contracts.

Learning methodology
A mixture of presentations, discussions and cases/exercises concerning actual procurement practice to be discussed in working groups. 

Objectives
The primary aim of this seminar is to present and explain the European rules and principles on public procurement in an accessible way and to enhance awareness of professional procurement practices. Most importantly, the seminar will offer an excellent platform for participants to exchange experiences and concerns in dealing with public procurement.
