New forms of cross-sector collaboration can be enabled by Pre-commercial Procurement and Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions. This high-level event will offer an opportunity to hear first-hand from the Committee of the Regions, the European Parliament, the European Commission, Cities and Regions how they are supporting the implementation of Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions (PPI) and Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP).

In other words, how public purchasers are enabled to buy better and/or cheaper products and services while at the same time boosting innovation in order to intensify a balanced innovation process.

From a European perspective, European Commission services will present 2015 calls for proposals as well as future financial instruments (Horizon 2020, CEF, Structural funds 2014-2020) to support the demand for innovation and innovative procurement.
