Enterprise and Industry 2 1. Demand-driven inno. policies; LMI Public Procurement Networks (1.0) Outcomes 2. Call for proposal ENT/CIP/11/C/N02C011 on Public Procurement Networks of Innovation Revision of 2004 Directives novelties & HORIZON 2020 Where are we coming from? Where are we? Where are we going?
Enterprise and Industry Demand-driven innovation Policies & Innovation procurement Current activities: Lead Market Initiative Where are coming from?
Enterprise and Industry 4 Measures from the supply side Measures from the demand-side - Regulation - Public procurement (PCP/PPI) - Financing R&D - Equity support - Fiscal Measures - Grants, loans - Standardisation Lead Market Initiative – Towards a policy mix Public policies tools for action Supply and demand-led innovation policy tools - Training, fairs -... Intention: Supporting market VS supporting technology push
Enterprise and Industry 5 Why supporting demand of innovation & innovation procurement? 1. Potential lever for action: 19% of EU GDP 2. Foster & accelerate access to market for innovative solutions 3. Foster EU Internal Market to benefit of EU businesses (SMEs) 4.Delivering better EU pubic services/ Societal challenges 5. Policy mix and international rising field of innovation support policies
Enterprise and Industry 6 What is innovation procurement? Composed of 2 main aspects Following the need assessment realised by the procurer there are 2 possibilities 1/ Procurement of innovative solutions that do not require R&D = Public Procurement of innovation Normal procurement procedure/directives 2/ Procurement of innovative solutions that require R&D = Pre-Commercial Procurement Working under R&D exemption of the procurement procedure/directives brochure_en.pdf brochure_en.pdf
Enterprise and Industry 7 Main difficulties of procurers purchasing innovative solutions? 1. Wrong incentives 2. Lack of knowledge and capabilities on technologies, innovations, market developments 3. No strategy that aligns public procurements with public policy objectives (e.g. health, environment, transport), and with R&D&I support programmes 4. Fragmentation in demand 5. Difficulties for innovative SMEs to be involved in public procurement as direct beneficiary/ client of a purchasing authority
Enterprise and Industry 8 Standardisation Labelling Certification Legislation Public Procurement Complementary Actions Sector- specific networks of Contracting Authorities to foster demand for innovation EU Recommendation for interoperability Financial support (CIP) for market replication projects Guide on funding available for RE demonstration and pilot projects Product performance standards e-Health Sustainable construction Protective textiles Bio-based products Recycling Renewable energies 2 nd generation of Eurocodes Revision of the PPE Directive SMEs guide on collaborative working schemes in construction Adopting minimal energy performance requirements Waste Framework Directive Lead Market Areas Policy tools Screening of national building regulations CEN Packaging Standards Introduce the Electronic Health Insurance Card Training platform for buyers and users FP7 call on bio- refinery pilot plants Mandatory national targets for 2020 Lead Market Initiative EU Patient Smart Open Services large scale pilot funded Inventory of legislation affecting bio- based products Inventory of all relevant standards

Implementation of a (joint or coordinated) call for tender (including marketing) (Joint) evaluation and selection of proposals (Joint) monitoring and evaluation of projects Current activities
Enterprise and Industry 19 Implementation of the project - important SPECIFIC 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); Current activities
Enterprise and Industry 20 Implementation of the project - important SPECIFIC 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 which have 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 be new to the contracting authority and new to the Internal Market. By the implementation of the procurement of innovative solution we mean: 1. The publication at Official Journal; 2. The evaluation of the tenders; 3. The conclusion of the award procedure followed by the payment to the "beneficiary of the market" (refer to part 4 "EU Financing"). Current activities
Enterprise and Industry 21 Implementation of the project - important Nota Bene for Strand 1 (page 15 ToR) A maximum of 20% of the price of actual purchase(s) of innovative solution (s) will be eligible, if the six following conditions are met: 1. The purchase takes place during and as part of the action and is otherwise eligible in accordance with Art. II.14 of the General Conditions; 2. In general, applicants and partners of applicants must be Contracting Authorities according 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 by one or several of such authorities or bodies governed by public law; 3. Multiple procurements can be implemented in a single consortium in the life-time of 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/have to be done following an EU wide publication, at least in English, and all offers are evaluated according to the same objective criteria regardless of the geographic location of company head offices, company size or governance structure, which ensure compliance with the principles of transparency, non-discrimination and equal treatment and which guarantee 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/have to use best value for money (and not just lowest price) criteria for evaluating offers. Current activities
Enterprise and Industry 22 Our challenges 1/ Being able to evaluate the innovativeness of a solution procured 2/ Demonstrating that financially supporting public procurement of innovation at European level could work 3/ Being successful in puling the demand of innovation at European level (Internal Market) Current activities
