IPFA Training Workshop: Spain 
A Practical Introduction to Public-Private Partnerships in Infrastructure

With the escalation of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) a number of our members are facing strict travel and meeting attendance restrictions. Due to these concerns this training course has been postponed from its original date of 27 Feb. We will inform members by sending out an email announcement and updating our website once the new date has been confirmed.

IPFA would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience caused, however, the health and safety of members and staff is our priority.

Due to some changes in our event schedule, over the coming months we will be announcing an increased amount of content for members to access online. Our current online content can be found on our website here which features past presentations and webinar recordings. Keep informed by ensuring you’re signed up to our mailings.

Arup and Solvere Infraestructuras are co-hosting a half-day workshop in Madrid, to introduce the basic concepts of public-private partnerships.

Public-private partnerships (PPPs or P3s) are complex, long-term contractual ventures between the government and private firms to deliver infrastructure and public services. They involve different layers of government organisations, financial institutions, contractors, investors, suppliers, users and other stakeholders.

There is no single definition of a PPP, but there are a number of elements that differentiate them from other forms of infrastructure procurement, as well as certain principles that determine a successful delivery to a great extent. The key drivers of PPPs are the roles, interests and relationships between the parties involved at each stage of the venture.

As part of this workshop, they will introduce the key elements of PPPs, the reasons why they are used, the key players involved and the challenges they face throughout their life cycle, from conception through construction, to operation and finalisation. The session is aimed at young professionals or anyone in the sector who is unfamiliar with but curious about infrastructure PPPs.

This workshop will be delivered in Spanish.

Las asociaciones público-privadas (APPs o PPPs) son contratos complejos a largo plazo entre el gobierno y empresas privadas para la provisión de infraestructura y/o servicios públicos. Las APPs involucran a diferentes niveles de administraciones públicas, instituciones financieras, contratistas, inversores, proveedores, usuarios y otras partes interesadas. No existe una definición única de APP, pero sí hay una serie de elementos que las diferencian de otras fórmulas de provisión de infraestructura, así como ciertos principios que determinan en gran medida su éxito. Los factores clave en las APP son los roles, intereses y relaciones entre las partes involucradas en cada etapa del proyecto.

Arup y Solvere Infraestructuras organizan conjuntamente un taller de medio día en Madrid para presentar los conceptos básicos de las asociaciones público-privadas. Presentaremos los fundamentos de las APP, las razones por las que se usan, los actores clave involucrados y los desafíos que presentan a lo largo de su ciclo de vida, desde su concepción hasta la construcción, operación y reversión. La sesión está dirigida a jóvenes profesionales o cualquier persona del sector que no esté familiarizada pero sí tenga interés por entender las APPs.
