Allereerst een gelukkig nieuwjaar gewenst! Voor mijn afstudeeronderzoek (TU Delft, MSc. Construction Management & Engineering i.s.m. AT Osborne) naar het innovatiepartnerschap ben ik op zoek naar mensen die de procedure kennen, het bestudeerd hebben of er mee hebben gewerkt. Ik heb een vragenlijst gemaakt waarin ik aan de hand van 40 stellingen een deel van de bevindingen die ik uit de literatuur heb gehaald toets aan de praktijk. Dus bent u bekend met he...

Bij HTM werken we al vele jaren met een erkenningsregeling, naar tevredenheid.
Wat jij gunningsdeel noemt, is waarschijnlijk de beslissing om een partij wel of niet toe te laten tot de erkenningsregeling. Hiervoor kun je alle standaard geschiktheidseisen hanteren (uitsluitingsgronden, financiële draagkracht, referenties, certificaten, etc.).

Piotr (www.eeb.org; www.makeresourcescount.eu)
One of the important support measures for the successful implementation of the GPP activities within the GreenS project is the undertaking of a series of webinars coordinated by GreenS partner ICLEI.
As a warm-up to the topic, the first two webinars focused on 'how to prepare a good GPP training package' (October 2015) and the "the magic of GPP" (March 2016). Following this introduction and baseline on key features of GPP, good practice examples and how to pack it in a regionally adapted trainin...

I'm looking for information on some of the social value that's been delivered into local authorities by some of the big suppliers like capita, NSL and Agilisys.
Have found the following so far:
Over the coming 10-15 years, the generation of vast amounts of data created by scientific research domains will create enormous challenges for capturing, managing, and processing of this data. Europe is well aware of this enormous challenge, and that is why the European Commission, in April this year, launched the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative.

Institutional needs on GPP and Good and bad practices
GreenS project has analyzed institutional needs and good and bad practices on GPP. In general, the results indicate that there is a lack of interconnections between the GPP policies and the actions performed at the national level, and the real practice and GPP employment among public sector officials responsible for procurement. It simply seems that despite all efforts to convey national GPP policy, information is not reaching the main tar...
