PPI2Innovate - Invitation to the event "Financing of innovations through PPI"

Public procurement of innovative solutions (PPI) is a powerful tool to boost innovation. The public sector demands innovative solutions that are not yet available or not at large scale on the market and thus forces providers to innovate. PPI2Innovate targets directly public procurers on all administrative levels in central Europe with the aim to build regional capacities in PPI, to change attitude towards PPI, to strengthen linkages among relevant stakeholders in regional innovation systems and to finally boost usage of PPI. The project will achieve this change by delivering innovative outputs such as 3 thematic PPI2Innovate tools for smart health, energy and ICT fully customized to 6 national institutional frameworks and translated.

For more info please visit project website.

 

PPI2Innovate Tools are under development

In the framework of the project PPI2Innovate, 3 general thematic PPI2Innovate Tools for SMART Health, SMART Energy and SMART ICT are going to be developed.

Currently there already exist different Toolkits developed on the EU level, however they are rather general as they don’t reflect the national specifics. PPI2Innovate is going to build on existing knowledge and deliver translated and completely customized thematic Tools into 6 national institutional frameworks. The Tools are going to be available in Hungarian, Czech, Polish, Italian, Slovenian and Croatian languages, while each of them is going to consider national legal frameworks

Boosting the demand for innovation from the side of public actors

Public procurement of Innovative Solutions (PPI) is a powerful tool to boost innovation. The public sector demands innovative solutions that are not yet available or not at large scale on the market and thus forces providers to innovate. PPI is well supported on EC level (i.e. H2020), there exist also various guidance and training tools already for few years. So far they didn't boost the PPI usage in majority of CE regions, because available tools are not customized to national frameworks and regional knowledge hubs are missing.

This is the reason why DEX Innovation Centre facilitated the preparation and submission of project PPI2Innovate – Capacity building to boost usage of PPI in Central Europe, which includes together 10 partners from Central Europe (Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, Slovenia, Hungary and Croatia). The project was successfully approved in the 1st call of Interreg Central Europe Programme with budget 1,6M EUR.

The project with duration 3 years will be implemented from June 2016 till May 2019 and will target directly public procurers on all administrative levels in CE with aim to build regional capacities in PPI, change attitude towards PPI, strengthen linkages among relevant stakeholders in regional innovation systems and thus boost usage of PPI.

All partners met at the Kick-off meeting of the PPI2Innovate 8th – 9th June in Székesfehérvár, in one of the most ancient towns in Hungary. The meeting was hosted by the Lead partner – Central Transdanubian Regional Innovation Agency Nonprofit and moderated by DEX Innovation Centre. Partners will start the work on the Identification of institutional frameworks relevant for PPI in all participating countries.
