A Half-Day Seminar with Networking Reception
Wednesday, May 29th 2013, 14h00 – 17h00.
Department of Economics, University of Limerick
The ‘Stimulus Plan’ announced by the Irish Government in July 2012 places Public Private Partnerships at the heart of plans for national economic recovery. The majority of projects earmarked for investment under the 2.25bn plan will be procured under PPP. However, mobilising a renewed wave of PPP procurement in Ireland will be challenging for reasons such as constraints on the availability of private finance and the complexities of procurement under PPP.
The Challenges of PPP in Turbulent Times seminar will bring together academics, public sector procurers and private sector participants to explore the challenges involved in a new wave of PPP procurement in Ireland. The seminar will be jointly hosted by the Privatisation and PPP Research Group at the Department of Economics, University of Limerick and the Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy at Cornell University, USA.
Speakers on the day include:
Professor Rick Geddes, Cornell University, USA;
Professor Edgar Morgenroth, Economic and Social Research Institute;
Mr. Brian Murphy, Chief Executive Officer, National Development Finance Agency;
Dr. Eoin Reeves, University of Limerick.
