Event Details

Join Santander for this exploratory webinar in collaboration with bee smart city aiming to demystify the public procurement process in Europe for UK companies, with a focus on the German market, covering topics including procurement criteria and public funding.

What does innovative procurement mean? What are the public procurement procedures followed in Germany? What are the criteria for your product/service to be selected by governments in Europe? How can you get funding to help with your tender bid?

Are you an innovative SME or start-up looking for answers to the above questions? If so, then join our panel discussion to hear from industry experts and understand how the legal framework, funding, and procurement policies work in Germany and turn all complexities into a competitive advantage for your company.

The webinar will be run as a panel discussion, with our supporting providers covering smart city opportunities, the innovation procurement process and selection criteria, and public funding for innovative projects. This will include addressing the UK Innovate guarantee for R&D Funding under Horizon Europe. During the event, you’ll have the chance to hear from a number of in-market experts, including:
