PPP means a partnership between private investors and public tasks – with the objective of less impact on public budgets, or public entities (states, regions, local government etc.), who have no or not enough financial manoeuvring space; they can (let) launch anyway infrastructure investment. PPP contain often a complicated web of interests and financial circumstances, which must be dealt with individually in most of the cases and cannot be considered to be solved in a standardized way.
PPP are, however, as well webs of relationships between the state and private investors or donors with the objective to set up and/or run a public institution. The definition of a PPP therefore is sometimes very large.
There is no real limit for PPP projects. Even very small projects can be run according to PPP principles. Altogether, PPP projects are very attractive as a framework for investment in particular in countries who could not afford the infrastructure themselves
With PPP projects synergy can be created across national (CBC = cross border cooperation) or other community borders. Often these projects are (co-)financed by the EU programme INTERREG. By this new forces can come to power in formerly divided regions.
LIBERTAS has worked in the first insertion of PPP in different countries – therefore we also know which mistakes in the continuation of this process should be avoided. Our experience is fed by previous legal activity.
Since the start of 2006, LIBERTAS – European Institute GmbH runs a Competence Centre where we take care of:
Introduction of PPP principles in legislation and administration (national, regional and local level)
