With the organisation of this session, LEA Team aims to:
- Promote procurers’ capacity building, enabling to better understand innovative procurement methods, namely PCP and PPI to procure innovative solutions for education;
- Enable dynamic dialogue between policy makers, procurers, experts, suppliers and schools in the digital learning eco-system, encouraging them to take part of the open innovation process;
- Identify common needs for increased learning results to unify and enlarge the digital learning procurers’ network (LEA-N- Formalized network of procurers for future collaboration within innovative procurement in Education.)
This will be a great opportunity to know and learn more about LEA's work.
INTED2019 will be held in Valencia (Spain), between 11 and 13 March 2019. To get more information about INTED2019, please consult the event website.
