Danish Procurement Pipeline - UK and wider European consultant and contractor participation

Bird & Bird in partnership with EiB invite you to our international webinar on the future opportunities for programme management, design and construction in Denmark and the Nordic Countries. We will share headlines on the future pipeline and energy-based opportunities coming to the market over the next three years…

International construction companies are paying attention to the Scandinavian infrastructure market, particularly UK consulting and construction firms given procurement is managed in English typically following the negotiated procedure.

We will be joined Peter Baynham of Atkins who has been operating and investigating in procurement opportunities across the Scandinavian region. Bird & Bird's Thomas Larsen, Stuart Cairns and Mikkel Taanum who will provide insight into the wider commercial challenges of the international market and EiB's Chris Geyton who will provide an overview of the developing procurement landscape.

In our webinar, we will cover:

  • Distanced procurement: What has changed in 12 months?
  • Bird & Bird’s role across Europe and an indication of what is coming to market in the next 3 years
  • Procurement and commercial used in Scandinavian countries
