Winter Master Class – Public Procurement and Public Private Partnership Law (2019)

Join Lexxion's Event in Paris.

This Master Class is especially designed for Public Procurement experts, who would like to deepen their knowledge on the latest developments and judgements and discuss their own Public Procurement cases.



1. Review and Assessment
On the first day, you receive an expert review of the latest Court rulings and Commission decisions. Seminal judgments and decisions are analysed in depth. The analysis identifies how principles are applied in specific situations, delineates possible exceptions and draws the implications for Public Procurement policies.

2. Problem Solving
The second day is devoted to cases and questions submitted by participants. Public Procurement measures, problems and other issues from the daily practice of participants are discussed and difficulties resolved. Participants receive advice on how to improve their Public Procurement measures and ensure their compatibility with the internal market.

3. Best Practices
On both days, the innovative format of this advanced small-scale Master Class enables you to consider wider issues of relevance to officials and practitioners involved in Public Procurement. You can exchange information and experience with professionals from other Member States.

Cases and Confidentiality: The participants will be required to submit a brief summary of the problem or case they want to present for discussion and advice in advance. Information concerning such problems and cases shall be treated confidentially.
