The CERN Procurement and Industrial Services group received the EIPM (European Institute of Purchasing Management) Peter Kraljic award for excellence in the “Innovation and Process” category at a ceremony held on 8 December 2016.
The EIPM Peter Kraljic awards, created in 2010, honour purchasing services that deliver excellence in terms of creativity, innovation and social and environmental responsibility.
The awards jury, which comprises industry leaders and purchasing experts, recognised CERN’s solid procurement process, the innovative mechanisms it uses to communicate with industry, its ability to foster innovation and its programme of education for stakeholders.
CERN is one of thirty companies and organisations from around the world to have been recognised for their outstanding practices by the EIPM since 2010.
