Interested to know how much the public sector in your country invests in adopting innovative solutions compared to other countries, and in which sectors they invest the most (health, transport, ICT etc.)? Keen to know if your country already has an action plan, target, financial incentives and a competence center for boosting innovation procurement? Join us at the 12 October workshop that will present the final results of the first European wide benchmarking of national innovation procurement investments and policy frameworks. Agenda and link to join the online event are available now.

DG CNECT invites you to attend on 12 October 2020 the final workshop of the study SMART 2016/0040 that benchmarked the national policy frameworks and investments on innovation procurement across Europe. First results on the benchmarking of the 2018 national innovation procurement policy frameworks were already published in 2019 (more info below). The workshop will present the final results of the policy framework and investment benchmarking, that includes an analysis of innovation procurement investments across different sectors of public interest (e.g. health, transport, security etc.) and strategic expenditure categories, in particular ICT, that fuel public sector modernization. The workshop is planned to take place in online webinar format.
