New Innovation Procurement Platform launched!

A new Innovation Procurement Platform has been launched, providing public procurers and policy-makers with a go-to spot for all the latest news and resources on innovation procurement.

Public procurement accounts for about 14% of the European Union's (EU) gross domestic product - meaning it has enormous potential to guide new developments in a range of sectors to address key societal challenges. It also benefits public sector customers directly through improved services at optimised costs.

Getting started with innovation procurement isn’t always easy – but the Innovation Procurement Platform is here to help! As well as listing opportunities for funding and support, the newly branded website’s Resource Centre offers over a 100 innovation procurement related resources, including case studies, guidance documents and reports.

The Innovation Procurement Platform replaces the PPI Platform, first established in 2012. It is managed by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, and its relaunch is supported by the Procure2Innovate project - a European network of competence centres for innovation procurement.
