The goal is to provide state-of-the art knowledge, tools & methods for modern public procurement, including policy objectives like SME-friendly procurementenvironmental sustainability and innovative procurement.

The teaching team will be composed of experienced public procurement experts (management & senior level from longstanding CPBs) and renowned lecturers from the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU).
