Course Aims

This Foundation Course includes the relevance and features of a proper PPP framework and the entire PPP process cycle, including a description of each of the phases that constitutes the process from a practical perspective. One additional objective of the Foundation Course is to help to create a common ground for terminology regarding PPPs and the PPP process.
