Save the date! Belgian Meet-the Market event: public procurement and plastic waste

PPI4Waste Logo Press Release 

As a partner of the European project PPI4Waste ACR+ is responsible for organising a “Meet the Market” event in Belgium on public procurement of innovation, targeting Belgian actors. The aim of this event is to gather public authorities and private operators in charge of waste management and offer them the possibility to exchange and debate on key topics.

The event, organised in Brussels on 24 March 2016 from 13h30 to 18h30, will focus on innovative public procurement in plastic waste collection and separation in Belgium. After a plenary session, several sub-groups will be created to address the needs and solutions in terms of plastic waste but also the existing barriers to public procurement and the potential solutions to overcome these barriers.

Belgian ACR+ members are invited to already save the date. More information will be communicated to them in the coming weeks by email and on the ACR+ website.

The PPI4Waste project explores mechanisms to overcome barriers to public procurement of innovation in the waste sector. You can find more information about the project on www.ppi4waste.eu
