Creating policy instruments for the support of public procurement of innovation

As part of the 11th European Innovation Summit, Ms Sunčana Glavak and partner organisations - Regional Energy Agency North, City of Koprivnica, Sviluppumbria and Be.Funded - will host an event at the European Parliament on the policy instruments which can support the public procurement of innovation.

The aim of the conference is to help policymakers, public authorities and other stakeholders to recognize and use the power of innovation procurement. More specifically, through the presentation of different EU/national/regional policy instruments and projects supporting and promoting innovation procurement it will look at potential policies and solutions to improve the use of public procurement to promote innovation. Since this event will take place during the Croatian Presidency of the Council of the EU we will also have the opportunity to hear about the priorities of Croatia's presidency related to this topic and innovation in general.

The conference will bring together policymakers, national and regional representatives in charge of national/regional policy instruments for support of PPI, EU networks/agencies in the field of innovation procurement, public authorities, and representatives of the Prominent MED project partner countries (Portugal, France, Italy, Spain and Croatia).
