Topics for Innovation Procurement H2020 online manual
Innovation procurement can drive the R&D and deployment of innovative solutions from the demand side through respectively pre-commercial procurement (PCP) and public procurement of innovative solutions (PPI). This can speed up public sector modernisation and open new market opportunities for companies in Europe. Coordination and support actions typically support procurers to investigate the feasibility and prepare the ground to start new PCPs or PPIs. PCP and PPI actions co-finance actual PCP or PPI procurements (one single joint PCP or PPI call for tenders or several separate but coordinated PPI calls for tenders per action) plus additional coordination and networking activities related to the procurement.
