17 Demand-side innovation policies: public procurement of innovation

18 Lead Market Initiative LMI Measures from the supply side Measures from the demand-side - Regulation - Public procurement - Financement de R&D - Equity support - Mesures fiscales - Subventions, prêts - Standardisation - Clusters… LMI package Policy mix: supply and demand-side measures - Formations, foires -... Intention: Supporting market VS supporting technology push

19 Innovation Union, Committment 17: P rocurement budgets for innovation Issues  Wrong incentives  Lack of knowledge and capabilities on technologies, innovations, market developments  No strategy that aligns public procurements with public policy objectives (e.g. health, environment, transport), and with R&D&I support programmes  Fragmentation in demand Actions  “Member States and regions should set aside dedicated budgets for pre- commercial procurements and public procurements of innovative products and services...  The Commission will provide guidance and set up a (financial) support mechanism to help contracting authorities to implement these procurements in a non-discriminatory and open manner, to pool demand, to draw up common specifications, and to promote SME access.  In addition, the Commission will offer guidance on implementing joint procurements between contracting entities…”
