Photo of Steen TreumerSteen Treumer is a well-known name for most people working with public procurement law in Denmark and internationally. For public procurement, as a research field, Steen Treumer was a frontrunner in many aspects, and with this conference, we want to honour his contribution to this field and Steen as a colleague, mentor and friend.

This Conference is divided into four thematic themes representing the main research areas of Steen Treumer:

  • Session I: Public Procurement Principles
  • Session II: Procurement Procedures
  • Session III: Modifications of procurement procedures and contracts
  • Session IV: Enforcement of the EU procurement rules

As part of the Conference a book with the same name will be presented (Into the northern lights - In memory of Steen Treumer). The book is an anthology containing both some of Steen Treumer’s work as well as contributions from scholars and practitioners.

We hope the Day will be a day of interesting debates, anecdotes and humor as would have been in the spirit of Steen Treumer.
