A unique initiative based on its Members
EPEC is unique - as a 'Members' club' designed solely to support public authorities deliver more, and better, PPP programmes, EPEC can promote the sharing of knowledge and experience in a way that would not otherwise be possible. Public authorities can discuss their experiences confidentially on a peer-to-peer basis, without fear of compromising negotiating positions on current or future deals. The involvement of the EIB, a public bank and Europe's leading funder of PPPs, adds further value. Commission Services with an interest in PPPs - notably DGs MOVE, REGIO, MARKET as well as EUROSTAT - benefit from the ability to learn from practitioners within the Membership, as well as giving Members the opportunity to discuss issues with the key European policy makers.
