Launch of Italian online Platform to support PCP and PPI

Appaltinnovativi.GOV aims to become a meeting point for public and private innovators across Italy. The Agency for a Digital Italy (AgID), which is a Government agency responsible for the implementation of the Italian Digital Agenda, has launched a platform in order to raise awareness among Italian public procurers in relation to a wide use of Pre-commercial procurement (PCP) and Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions (PPI).

The Platform includes a tool that should enable Italian public administrations to express innovation needs to launch market challenges. Moreover, it will collect news and updates on innovation needs, market consultations and innovative tenders called by Italian public administrations.

The launch of the online meeting point emphasises innovation procurement as a empowering approach for the public administration. As such the new platform is a tool that support public buyers to challenge the market to respond creatively and innovatively to their needs.

ICLEI facilitates the uptake of innovation procurement at a European level. With projects such as InnovationBrokers a fruitful dialogue is placed at the core to strengthen the buyer-supplier relationships.
