EURIPHI International Roundtable: an opportunity for a fruitful dialogue

Posted on 02.04.2020

The Horizon 2020 EU funded Coordinating and Supporting Action EURIPHI – European wide Innovation Procurement in Health and Care – is fostering the introduction of innovations in Europe’s health and social care systems through cross-border value-based innovation procurement.

Within the framework of the project, the EURIPHI International Roundtable took place in Brussels on March 10. The event was organised with the support of EUREGHA as a project partner.

The event gathered representatives of European, national and regional authorities, Public Procurement Organisations (PPOs) and the medical technology Industry. The discussion was centred on the opportunities and challenges of performing joint procurement across borders. Speakers also shared the outcomes of EU funded initiatives on cross-border innovation procurement, including the RITMOCORE PPI H2020 project. Finally, the EURIPHI cross-border procurement model was presented.

The event’s goal was to stimulate the debate on how to facilitate cross-border cooperation and to define the most efficient and effective cooperation along the tender process, while maintaining localised decision-making.
