The first eafip workshop was organised jointly with NHS England, focusing on innovation procurement of ICT-based solutions in the health and elderly care sector.

eafip supports EU public procurers in the design and implementation of innovation procurement of ICT solutions. In this workshop, public procurers in the healthcare sector got the chance to receive information and hands-on support about:

  • Concrete cases of new procurement needs identified by the participating key procurers;
  • The upcoming EU funding opportunities in the health / elderly care domain; and
  • The different steps of designing and undertaking a PCP or PPI procurement.
