25 April 2013, Brussels: Round Table ‘PPP Innovation’
We live in times of crisis, decentralisation, a shift of responsibilities between public and private partners in infrastructure. Does it mean that public authorities focus more in PPP to be able to invest in necessary projects? Do we see more partial projects in stead of large development projects? How do we mitigate the risks today? And how can we improve the (choice of) contracts, the preparation and the competencies in the public authorities?
Can we learn from the differences between the EU-member states today? Can PRIMO Europe help to open eyes to experiences and innovation? Read more >
21 May 2013, Ashford: Think Tank ‘From Global to Local’
Launched on the 21st of February 2013, Brussels.The Global Risk Report is clearly designed for global issues, sometimes related to the national level, but sometimes even going larger than that. The report gives a general outline of the most relevant risks. PRIMO Europe has the conviction that many of the addressed risks will have their strongest influence within communities and cities. We know that not all risks can be handled and reduced on local level, but we know from our network and members that all local and regional public leaders and the (city) managers will be faced with the direct consequences of the emerging risks as they are reported.

- PRIMO has embraced the ISO 31000 principles and guidelines for risk management. PRIMO Europe has chosen to take the ISO 31000 as referential framework for public risk management and the organisations working in the public domain. Although the framework is still very young, published in 2009, and need a lot of further development steps it is a complete framework in its essence. From here we start working. Read more >

This year we focus on improving and expanding our European network. With Spain newly represented in our board, a new cooperation in the United Kingdom (Alarm) in preparation, our first contacts in Italy, Norway and Sweden we hope to contribute a more intense sharing of knowledge in Europe.Our scope is on redesigning Public Private Partnership on infrastructure, reducing the total costs of risks and on improving public governance by risk management innovation and on translating the global risks into the local level. Therefor we are strengthening our relations with organizations as with United Nations, World Economic Forum , EIPA, EUPAN and European Parliament.
We are focussed on sharing knowledge, experiences and best practices between public leaders, managers, senior advisors, scientists and policy makers within the public domain. With our partners Marsh, RMP and UDITE, our members, our chapters throughout the different European countries and our Scientific Council we developed an online Library with relevant news and publications.
