#5 Non-institutionalised cooperation after Stadt Köln & Cooperation in academia
- What is the non-institutionalised exemption in EU public procurement law?
- When can we use this exemption that accommodates cooperation between contracting authorities outside the scope of this field of law?
- What is the impact of the CJEU case Stadt Köln?
- How to interpret concepts like ‘cooperation’ and ‘ancillary activity’?
- Why is cooperation so important in academia?
- What to do about joint or single authored articles?
In today’s episode, we discuss the tricky concept of non-institutionalised cooperation and its relationship with EU public procurement law. For this purpose, we consider the recent ruling of the CJEU in the case of Stadt Köln. In this case, the CJEU made significant headway in clarifying some aspects of article 12(4) Directive 2014/24/EU for the first time. For desert, we stick to the theme of cooperation and discuss it in light of its role in academia.
Let’s dish up public procurement law!
