Innovation procurement: The power of the public purse
This brochure provides an overview of projects that are focusing on innovation procurement in the ICT domain funded by the EU's research and innovation funding programs FP7, CIP and Horizon 2020. This includes projects in which public procurers from different countries around Europe pool resources to carry out PCP or PPI procurements together, plus coordination and networking projects that prepare the ground for new PCP or PPI procurements in the future. (september 2019)
European cooperation enables procurers to share the costs and risks of carrying out innovation procurements and find common answers to problems that are best tackled at European level for example to address issues such as cross-border interoperability, market fragmentation etc. This brochure aims to share experiences about how different challenges of public interest in the EU can be addressed via innovation procurement. It provides also links where more information can be obtained so other procurers around Europe can use PCP and PPI approaches as well in the future.
