Public Procurement of Innovation: Towards a European Scheme

Feasibility study "Future EU support to public procurement of innovative solutions"

The need for support of the procurement of innovation by the European Commission is a strongly supported policy option to deliver innovation across the European Union, driven by the demand of public procurement budgets of Member States. The feasibility study shows there is support for such a policy to be launched and that it should have both top-down and bottom-up instruments or modalities to support procurement including actual procurements of innovative goods and services.

High level meeting discussing results of the feasibility study - "The Power of the Purse - Public Procurement of Innovation", February 9, 2012, European Parliament

In order to prepare the future developments in the field of innovation procurement, Daniel Calleja Crespo (Director General of DG enterprise and Industry) and Malcolm Harbour (MEP, Chairman of the IMCO Committee) co-chaired the exchange of views based on for the findings of the study. They engaged discussion with IMCO and ITRE Members and received views from European procurers, innovation agencies, venture capitalists, academics and researchers, SME organisation and industry representatives. Scenarios sketched by the study were discussed, as well as three main aspects: implementation structure, budget figures and fields of deployment (inline with Societal Challenges or industrial policy sectors).
