    • Welcome to our Learning Platform, tailored to enhance your learning experience as part of the Strategic Procurement training for Public Buyers initiative (EISMEA/2023/OP/0012). The goal of this initiative is to boost the uptake of strategic public procurement in the European Economic Area (EEA), playing a pivotal role in the EU's economic recovery. We aim to create a culture of innovation and support startups, while also fostering a more accessible procurement environment for SMEs. 

      Procure Innovation EU- Training Programme main objectives are to:

      • Enhance innovation procurement by advocating for a cultural shift within the public sector.
      • Empower public buyers, including staff and decision-makers, with specialised training, encouraging contracting authorities to adopt an innovation culture.
      • Deliver trainings which will cover both legal and practical aspects of public procurement.

      This training programme is divided into two levels:

      • Level 1: Public Buyers´ staff. Participants will gain comprehensive knowledge to develop procurement processes, understand associated challenges, implement learned strategies, develop analytical and evaluation skills, and foster soft skills for innovation development.
