DG Connect Workshop

The Scenario
Under Digital Agenda, the European Commission commits itself through Action 23 to provide guidance on the link between ICT Standardisation and Public Procurement in order to help public authorities use standards to promote efficiency and reduce lock-in.

As a matter of fact, using ICT open standards results in:

  • Higher savings when procuring ICT
  • An increased level of competition among suppliers
  • Being compliant with EU Public Procurement directives

The Workshop
If you are involved somehow in ICT procurement and want to know how other organizations similar to yours are successfully dealing with ICT "lock-in", you are warmly invited to attend the “Open Standards for ICT Procurement: Planning for a strong Future” workshop, taking place in Brussels - at DG CONNECT - on November 13th, 2015.

The Workshop will be a great opportunity to meet MSP members, procurement managers, policymakers and ICT suppliers to discuss how to effectively reduce lock-in by using Open Standards.

The main goals of the event are:

  • Provide some suggestions on how to reduce lock-in;
  • Share some good practice examples about ICT procurement;
  • Gather new ideas to revamp the EC policy for the procurement of ICT products and services on the base of standards

We planned various networking opportunities to allow you to share your opinion with a number of top-tier experts.
