Where Procurement Meets
Transparency • Digitalization • Sustainability

 

The goal of the summit is to highlight the most pressing problems that procurement professionals currently face:

  1. Transparency  - the central success factor for all product decisions in procurement projects. This is not only about prices, but also about how procurement managers communicate at eye level with medical users and the industry.
    How this transparency can be achieved at national and European level is the cornerstone of the congress.

     
  2. Digitalization - the entire procurement world beyond healthcare is going digital - but hospitals are still 10 years behind the curve. Millions in efficiency reserves can be leveraged if efficient digital tools are used
     
  3. Sustainability - how to reach net zero. What does the implementation of the EU's 'Fit for 55' program mean in terms of legislation for future tenders that favor products with a lower CO2 footprint?

The answer to these questions and many more await you in Brussels!
