HOOP Legal Advisory Board

Call for Experts

The HOOP project aims to foster investment in urban circular bioeconomy in 8 European pilot cities and regions, our “Lighthouses”, through different actions that include the preparation of Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) and Public Procurement of Innovative solutions (PPI) instruments. Other actions are aimed at strengthening forward-looking Public Procurement strategies in the domain of waste bio-based processes, creating a sector-specific network of Public Contracting Authorities to foster demand for innovation.

As part of the assistance to the Lighthouses, the HOOP Legal Advisory Board (LAB), coordinated by project partner and EU expert Sara Bedin, will gather lawyers with expertise on the 8 national legal and procurement frameworks corresponding in the 8 HOOP procuring countries: Italy, Portugal, Spain, Greece, The Netherlands, Germany, Norway, and Finland.

Are you a legal expert in the field? Work for the HOOP Legal Advisory Board and join a pioneering group of legal experts in public procurement for the urban circular bioeconomy! Conditions, including the available budget, are detailed here.

What will you do in the HOOP Legal Advisory Board?
