The event held within the project Atlantic Social LAB will be attended by all project partners and will have as keynote speaker Mr. Javier Palmero Zurdo, Deputy Head of Unit G3, Procurement legislation and enforcement at the European Commission.

The workshop will addressed topics connected to how to integrate the social clauses within the local procurement procedures.

Avilés Municipality integrated the social clauses in its public procurement 9 years ago and as a main result 561 people at risk of exclusion have been hired to develop works and services for the Municipality.
