CPC and the Dutch Institute for Construction Law (IBR) have launched a joint research initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to improve the legal framework for the competitive tendering and execution of construction projects in the Netherlands. The cooperation includes several research projects and is the result of a conference on the future of Dutch construction contract law. The conference took place on 22 September 2021, following a book published by CPC-researcher Chris Jansen and a special issue of the Netherlands Construction Law Review (TBR).
The Centre for Public Contract Law & Governance is an expert centre of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. It focuses on government contracts, public procurement, distributing scarcity, public-private legal relationships, semi-public entities, and distribution of responsibilities on the market.
