inkop5_120130_0A dozen project participants from Norway, Denmark and Sweden met in Copenhagen January 30 to start the joint process of the work package purchase. Six organizations in the project take on the exciting process of procurement of FCEVs (hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles). They will have different pace, but a common knowledge sharing throughout the way. The start-up meeting gathered purchasing, technical and legal expertise from the various organizations.

The meeting agenda included identification of the different procurement process in each country and where the critical points are, as well as a discussion regarding when and how knowledge sharing is to occur along the way.

First out in the procurement process is the City of Copenhagen. Over a week ago they published an indicative notice (“Prior Information Notice”) about the upcoming Next Move-procurement in the EU’s public procurement system.

Coordinator of Work Package Purchase is Birte Busch Thomsen, City of Copenhagen.
