2 Where are we coming from? Where are we? Where are we going? 1. Demand-driven inno. policies; LMI Public Procurement Networks (1.0) Outcomes2. Call for proposal ENT/CIP/11/C/N02C011 on Public Procurement Networks of Innovation 2.03. Revision of 2004 Directives novelties & HORIZON 2020
3 Demand-driven innovation Policies & Innovation procurement Current activities: Lead Market Initiative Where are coming from?
4 Supporting market VS supporting technology push Public policies tools for actionSupply and demand-led innovation policy toolsMeasures from the demand-side- Regulation- StandardisationLead Market Initiative –Towards a policy mix- Public procurement (PCP/PPI)Intention:Supporting market VS supporting technology push- Fiscal Measures- Financing R&D- Equity support- Grants, loans- Training, fairs- ...Measures from the supply side4
5 Why supporting demand of innovation & innovation procurement? Potential lever for action: 19% of EU GDPFoster & accelerate access to market for innovative solutionsFoster EU Internal Market to benefit of EU businesses (SMEs)Delivering better EU pubic services/ Societal challengesPolicy mix and international rising field of innovation support policies
6 What is innovation procurement? Composed of 2 main aspects Following the need assessment realised by the procurer there are 2 possibilities1/ Procurement of innovative solutions that do not require R&D = Public Procurement of innovation Normal procurement procedure/directives2/ Procurement of innovative solutions that require R&D = Pre-Commercial Procurement Working under R&D exemption of the procurement procedure/directives
7 Main difficulties of procurers purchasing innovative solutions? Wrong incentivesLack of knowledge and capabilities on technologies, innovations, market developmentsNo strategy that aligns public procurements with public policy objectives (e.g. health, environment, transport), and with R&D&I support programmesFragmentation in demandDifficulties for innovative SMEs to be involved in public procurement as direct beneficiary/ client of a purchasing authority

For each, we made an action plan and here are some examples of the actions.SMEs are important in these markets. SMEs accounted for 90% for GDP in construction. Even in eHealth, there are over 3000 SMEs active in Europe.Services are important, even also for protective textiles were the maintenance of these high tech uniforms and garments is a high added value industry.Each action is implemented by a lead DG in the European Commission, that works together with other DGs and stakeholders to implement the actions.You note that funding does NOT play a big part in the LMI. The LMI is a demand-side policy approach. We do use some FP7 and CIP funding to fund complementary activities such as studies and networking, and investing into near-to-market projects, such as the bio-based products pilot plants.In May, we will announce the results of a CIP call to fund networks of public procurers in the lead markets.We would like small consortia of the best public procurers to come together and see how public procurement of innovative goods and services in a specific lead market can be improved. One of the core tasks of these networks is to exchange best practice in technical dialogue, so that hospitals, local councils, governments etc know what innovative solutions are out there on the market.Strongest industries in this regionFor this region, check are: Franche-ComtéAutomotive % %***MediumStrongFranche-ComtéMetal % %**MediumWeakFranche-ComtéFinance % %*MediumWeakBut also power and metal (link recycling)This is an overview of activities started in People can get more info by going to our website (updated hopefully before Easter) and by looking at the action plans.Bio-based productsProduct performance standardsInventory of legislation affecting bio-based productsFP7 call on bio-refinery pilot plantsRecyclingCEN Packaging StandardsWaste Framework DirectiveFinancial support (CIP) for market replication projectsRenewable energiesAdopting minimal energy performance requirementsMandatory national targets for 2020Guide on funding available for RE demonstration and pilot projectsLead Market Initiative 09-12’Policy tools8

19 Implementation of the project - important Current activitiesImplementation of the project - importantSPECIFIC OBJECTIVE (page 8-9 ToR)1/ Development of public procurement of innovative solutions (preparation phase and implementation phase):· to create buyers groups dedicated to prepare for the procurement of innovative solutions (including needs assessment, market consultation (involvement of the supply chain (in particular European SMEs)), specification development, risk management), and the actual procurement process (including defining the conditions for the collaboration between contracting authorities, sharing resources in the evaluation of bids and related procedures, translations and publicising the calls for tender);
20 Implementation of the project - important Current activitiesImplementation of the project - importantSPECIFIC OBJECTIVE (page 8-9 ToR)2/ and, with the possibility to implement within the time-line of the project a public procurement of innovative solutions co-financed by the European Union; resulting in the first application / commercialisation of innovations of European Union relevance whichhave already been technically demonstrated with success but which, owing to residual risk, are not yet commercially available in the market in which the procurement authority operates. This includes solutions based on existing technologies that are to be utilised in a new and innovative way, as well as non-technological innovations. The solutions have to benew to the contracting authority and new to the Internal Market. By the implementation of the procurement of innovative solution we mean:The publication at Official Journal;The evaluation of the tenders;The conclusion of the award procedure followed by the payment to the"beneficiary of the market" (refer to part 4 "EU Financing").
21 Implementation of the project - important Current activitiesImplementation of the project - importantNota Bene for Strand 1 (page 15 ToR)A maximum of 20% of the price of actual purchase(s) of innovative solution (s) will beeligible, if the six following conditions are met:1. The purchase takes place during and as part of the action and is otherwise eligible inaccordance with Art. II.14 of the General Conditions;2. In general, applicants and partners of applicants must be Contracting Authoritiesaccording to Directives 2004/18/EC and 2004/17/EC, Contracting Authorities shall be the State, regional or local authorities, bodies governed by public law, associations formed byone or several of such authorities or bodies governed by public law;3. Multiple procurements can be implemented in a single consortium in the life-timeof the action. The total co-financing does not exceed EUR 500,000;4. The total amount of the EU contribution for the purchase(s) does not exceed one third(1/3) of the total EU contribution for the action;5. The call for tender(s) for the actual purchase(s) of innovative solution(s) has/haveto be done following an EU wide publication, at least in English, and all offers areevaluated according to the same objective criteria regardless of the geographic location ofcompany head offices, company size or governance structure, which ensure compliancewith the principles of transparency, non-discrimination and equal treatment and whichguarantee that tenders are assessed in conditions of effective competition;6. The call for tender(s) for the actual purchase(s) of innovative solution(s) has/haveto use best value for money (and not just lowest price) criteria for evaluating offers.
