Pre-commercial Procurement and Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions
Mar 22, 2013 01:30 PM
This high level event will offer an opportunity to hear first hand from the European Commission and Member States how they are supporting the implementation of Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions (PPI) and Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP). In other words, how public purchasers (and private procurers) are enabled to buy better and/or cheaper products and services while at the same time boosting innovation.
The European Commission services will present 2013 CIP and FP7 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.
