19 Innovation Union, Committment 17: Procurement 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…”
