Langs deze weg de vraag of iemand, werkzaam bij een Hogeschool, de aanbesteding "Technische ge- en verbruikersartikelen" heeft uitgevoerd. Indien dit het geval is kom ik graag met u in contact om te bespreken welke productgroepen u hier onder heeft gebracht.
Als onderzoeker bij de SERV Stichting Innovatie & Arbeid maakte ik een studie rond innovatief & duurzaam aanbesteden met daarbij enkele tips om KMO’s beter bij aanbestedingen te betrekken. U vindt meer info en linken naar mijn publicatie op onze website http://www.serv.be/stichting/kennisdocument/innovatief-en-duurzaam-aanbesteden-vlaanderen
Hierna worden een aantal voorbeelden gegeven van mogelijke acties t.a.v. KMO’s.
