On this date, the Conference ‘Into the northern light – In memory of Steen Treumer’ will be held at the University of Copenhagen, organized by CEPRI – Centre for Private Governance & WELMA – Legal Studies in Welfare and Market.

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

The Conference is divided into four thematic themes representing Steen Treumer’s main research areas:

  • 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.
