Cagliari, September 28 - 29, 2023

Since 2011 the University of Rome Tor Vergata, together with partner institutions, organises the Interdisciplinary Symposium on Public Procurement.

The aim of the Symposium is to bring together economists, engineers, lawyers, management scholars and professionals in the field of public procurement through dialogue and discussion. The organizers have the ambition to reduce the terminology barrier between all interested parties, bridging the cross cultural divide and reaching a joint wider understanding of practical issues in public procurement.
The Symposium attempts to suggest reform measures for better rules of acquisition for Public Administrations and provides a platform for the discussion on the challenging issues of the modern practices in public procurement.
While topics and references will certainly involve the European Union environment, the Symposium shall not be limited to this area, taking advantage of best practices worldwide.

The conference will take place in presence. There are no online sessions.
The conference will be held in English. An interpreting service from and to the Italian language will be provided.


The "Interdisciplinary Symposium on Public Procurement", together with the Public Procurement Management Master program in Rome  and Belgrade, the Global Procurement Conference and the IMPPM ALUMNI Association, contributes to the IMPPM Constellation, a multifaceted “ecosystem” for learning and discussing on new and challenging ideas across the disciplines of public procurement; a community of experts with different backgrounds who join periodically to debate on procurement issues.

The “Interdisciplinary Symposium on Public Procurement” series of the University of Rome Tor Vergata in collaboration with other prestigious Universities and Research Centers started in Rome back in 2011, followed by Budapest in 2014, Belgrade in 2016 and Paris in 2018, hosting renowned experts, researchers and scientists in the field of public procurement from all over the world.

All previous editions of the Symposium papers were published in the Routledge series “The Economics of Legal Relationships”.
