"Innovation brokers" is one of the initiatives from the European Commission's Start-up and Scale-up Initiative.
The role of the brokers is to address a gap in the relationship between public buyers interested in purchasing innovative solutions and innovative small and medium-sized enterprises, especially start-ups. The broker will proactively create and facilitate such links. The pilot of this initiative will focus on the strategic area of sustainability and energy efficiency.
You can access the call for the pilot on the EASME website. Further information and instructions for submitting questions can also be found there.
