The Hungarian government intends to launch all EU tenders by the spring of 2017. Amidst such an intensive period it is crucial to have a clear view of the ongoing processes and their impacts. Portfolio’s traditional summit ‘EU Funds’, which is to be held for the third consecutive year, with the participation of Hungary’s key development policy makers, is to address the above issues.
Why is the cabinet in such a hurry and how will it be able to allocate 9 trillion forints worth of funds by 2019? What economic and financial impacts will this abundance of funds have, and what will happen to Hungary after all available funds are drawn? What financing opportunities are there to see the planned developments through, and what consultants can do to help ensure sustainable developments? What changes must be kept in sight during pubic procurements, and how will Hungary switch to a fully-fledged e-procurement system? What are the main requirements at Research & Development & Innovation, and at energy efficiency tenders? What opportunities do direct EU funds offer and how are they different from the usual EU tenders?
These are hugely important questions, to which the answers await you at the top-notch ‘EU Funds’ conference, which offers you not only a high-quality professional agenda, but also an excellent networking opportunity.
