03: Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP): An Instrument for Creating Innovation

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Pre-commercial procurement is an attractive instrument because it is unbureaucratic and flexible. It is used by competitive enterprises to develop new ideas and solutions for public demand. PCP especially supports SMEs in creating R&D competence and market generation. It also benefits public authorities by taking problems off their hands. The workshop will present examples of successful implementations in the US and Europe and put the perspectives for implementation in Austria up for discussion.
