Procurers Group

Legal Advisors Group

This group is primarily for legal professionals who support procurers or are involved in the procurement process. In order to overcome the difficulties caused by the transposition of the European directives, as well as by the varying national regulations and standards, iProcureNet connects with the legal advisors of the relevant procurement organisations. Creating a dialogue among the experts and being able to find assistance when needed, this group facilitates achieving the common objectives within the community and thus the overall European joint cross-border procurement.

The University of Tartu leads the Legal Advisors Group.

Disaster Resilient Societies Group

The scope of the Disaster Resilient Societies (DRS) group is to get together prescribers from all EU countries. This group focuses on the impact and EU’s preparedness for crisis or extraordinary events resulting from natural forces related to climate change, man-made accidents, catastrophes. This live group reacts to particular problems in real time. Nowadays, disasters such as the increasing number of extreme dry and large fires as well as storms, wind shrinking, snow calamities and floods are more common. Solving such disasters requires deployment of large capacities not only in terms of human resources, but also technical, technological and others, often on an international collaborative level.

The International Security and Emergency Management Institute leads the Disaster Resilient Societies Group.
