This session will be held in English.
Through the European network Procure2Innovate, PIANOo shares knowledge about public procurement of innovation with other competence centers. This network was set up 4 years ago and funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
At the start of the session, the European Commission will elaborate on the origin of the network and current policy context.
Afterwards, the network shares results from past years and tells more about the plans for the coming years.
The second half of the session focuses on a European project in which several countries work together and explain their cross-border joint innovation procurement.
