Influential innovation procurement for security in Europe

An event in Lisbon and online over two days to discover the iProcureNet results in the wider context of security services of the future.

Portuguese Criminal Police

Hosted by the Portuguese Criminal Police in Lisbon, the topic for our iProcureNet 2022 Annual Conference is “Influential Innovation Procurement for Security in Europe”.

Direct influence is key: from the definition of security needs to the realisation of mutualisation projects with other Member States, influential innovation procurement will shape the security market of tomorrow in Europe.

With opening talks from the Portuguese Criminal Police, the Portuguese Secretary of State of Justice, the European Research Agency and the French Ministry of Interior, the conference will discuss, a variety of key topics – from innovation at the heart of security forces, influencing innovation uptake through PCP/PPI, standards in public procurement, value engineering in public procurement and more.

You will also have the chance to discover the iProcureNet Toolbox – by procurers for procurers – the iProcureNet Network+Community, and the iProcureNet methodology for joint cross border public procurement and procurement of innovation.

We are honoured to also count in our programme the participation of Europol, ENLETS, BroadGNSS, SHUTTLE, DanSENSE, EAFIP / Corvers and more.
