Institute public for private partnership Slovenia

Institute for Public-Private Partnership was founded in 2008 as a private institute with the belief that legal and economic scientific research in the field of public-private partnership should be encouraged and that the results of the research should be systematically transferred into practice. Hence, the Institute comprises a dynamic group of experts from various fields, who share an unwavering thirst for knowledge. The basic areas of operation of the Institute include: public procurement, concessions and public-private partnerships, public services and public infrastructure, energy performance contracting, investment documentation and economic analysis, project management, legal advice, and knowledge transfer.
