The biotech event ‘BioSpain’, one of the largest biotech events in the world, will take place in Bilbao, Basque Country, from 28 - 30 September 2016, and will include a session on innovation in public procurement. Speakers from the Regional Government of Galicia (Spain), PIANOo – The Dutch Public Procurement Expertise Centre, the Agency for Health Quality and Assessment of Catalonia (Spain), and the National Institutes of Health (USA) will address participants, discussing the benefits of procuring innovation and the potential uses of new biotechnologies.

Other issues to be raised at the session, titled ‘New gaming rules: innovation through Innovative Public Procurement’, are the challenges and opportunities of launching PPI and PCP contracts, the rules of those contracts, and the expectations companies have.

Companies seeking international financing or partners will have the opportunity to present their business project to the audience, while the session ‘The European Commitment for Bioeconomy’ will explore the future of the bioeconomy in Europe.
