A clear view on legal issues
The Corvers international team works within a wide array of large international projects – giving either advice and/or conducting research.
Below we give a short overview of several international projects/organisations Corvers had worked form in the recent past.
The SKA-project aims to design and build the world’s largest radio telescope meant to support cutting-edge science experiments and astronomical exploration.
Corvers was requested to advise on the appropriate strategy for managing procurement and intellectual property risks and assets at the construction phase of the SKA project, while taking into consideration the legal, political and technological complexities of the project.
Corvers International team teaches yearly in the International Master in Public Procurement Management at the Tor Vergata University in Rome. This is an advanced 1 year Master, born out of a collaboration between Procurement Department of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and of the Tor Vergata University in Rome.
The Corvers team teaches on various topics, such as negotiations in public contracts, dealing with disputes at different stages of procurement (through alternative dispute resolutions tools or through court litigation), obtaining best value for public spending or handling intellectual property rights in innovation-oriented awards.
The scope of the project was to explore the feasibility of a EU support scheme for public procurement of innovation. Corvers performed this project in partnership with Manchester Business School, ICLEI and Technopolis.
Corvers used its legal expertise in evaluating the proposed support scheme against the EU funding frameworks, the European public procurement rules and the European policy objectives.
