September 27, 2022

Project results are expected to contribute to all of the following expected outcomes:

  • Establishing long-term national and regional innovation procurement policy frameworks and integration of innovation procurement in sectoral policies;
  • Establishing action plans, including spending targets and monitoring systems to be implemented by different levels of public authorities; defined set of incentives mechanisms to stimulate innovation procurement;
  • Adoption and scale-up of joint procurement initiatives managed by national, regional, local authorities enabling innovations to be commercialised in the public (and also private) sector (and therefore providing market opportunities to European innovators and encouraging cross-European procurement);
  • Further engagement of public buyer’s community with SMEs, start-ups, incubators and accelerators, research institutions in driving innovation demand and detecting the innovative solutions;
  • Improved SMEs’ skills and capacity to identify buyers’ needs, to facilitate access to the public buyers;
  • Improved buyers’ skills and capacity to match their needs and challenges to possible technological solutions at the market and design innovative procurements;
  • Effective adoption of co-creation models to stimulate SMEs’ response to buyer’s needs and challenges;
  • Reduced gap between pilots, up-take and scale-up of projects.

Target group(s): Public national, regional and/or local authorities, public-owned enterprises, SMEs and start-ups, incubators, accelerators, research institutions and technological organisations.
