The workshop is geared entirely towards the healthcare sector and will provide procurers with access to good practice approaches and hands-on support:

- The different steps of designing and undertaking a PCP or PPI procurement;
- Discussion of concrete cases of new procurement needs identified by the participating procurers; and
- Networking and experience exchange.
The parallel afternoon sessions will cover concrete scenarios for innovation procurement implementation, and potential areas for cross-border PCP/PPI cooperation in preparation of Horizon 2020 calls for proposals that support innovation procurement in health and active ageing domain.
