EHPPA General Assembly #24


On April 15th and 16th, the 24th General Assembly of our association took place in Oslo, hosted by Sykehusinnkjøp HF.

The first half of the first day was dedicated to visiting Forskningsparken - Oslo Science Park and exchanging ideas on innovative projects and best practices for procuring innovative solutions, as well as fostering public and private collaboration in our sector with Oslo universitetssykehus and Health2B Norway.

During the General Assembly, EHPPA members discussed and shared their knowledge and national practices in value-based procurement, innovation, category management, and sustainability, and planned potential future collaborations and exchanges.

The General Assembly also provided an opportunity to review actions taken at the beginning of the year and introduced upcoming actions:

  • The organization of a physical Workshop on Sustainability and Social Value by Alyson Brett, our Vice-President in charge of this topic, scheduled for June.

  • Implementation of internal webinars to professionalize EHPPA members on AI, digitalization, national initiatives, etc.

These two days of meetings were rich with exchanges. We have some exciting initiatives coming up on strategic topics.

Stay tuned!
