Welcome to SPICE Workshop Day! On 3 May, the SPICE project will host a workshop in Hamburg on joint procurement, Common Buyers Groups and the aspects of the procurement of innovation in the urban mobility context.

This Workshop Day will give you a sneak preview of the insights gathered throughout the SPICE project. You will interact with a network of competent colleagues from across Europe and get a chance to be inspired in your next procurement venture.

SPICE encourages public authorities to take the next steps towards cooperating in the procurement of innovative mobility solutions by shaping and initiating Common Buyers Groups. These groups gather like-minded public authorities that have a common goal for their procurement process.

We are delighted to present how we can support your procurement projects and we look forward to extending our collaboration during the next SPICE Workshop Day!
