1 Demand-led Innovation Policies Innovation Procurement
Dr. Bertrand Wert DG Enterprise and Industry Policy Development for Industrial Innovation PUBLIC PROCUREMENT of INNOVATION: Kick-off meeting of the Fired-IP project 11 June 2012 / London (UK)

2 Where are we coming from? Where are we? Where are we going?
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 2.0 3. 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 action Supply and demand-led innovation policy tools Measures from the demand-side - Regulation - Standardisation Lead 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 side 4

5 Why supporting demand of innovation & innovation procurement?
Potential lever for action: 19% of EU GDP Foster & accelerate access to market for innovative solutions Foster EU Internal Market to benefit of EU businesses (SMEs) Delivering better EU pubic services/ Societal challenges Policy 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 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

7 Main difficulties of procurers purchasing innovative solutions?
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 Difficulties for innovative SMEs to be involved in public procurement as direct beneficiary/ client of a purchasing authority

8 Lead Market Initiative 09-12’
Standardisation Labelling Certification Legislation Public Procurement Complementary Actions Lead Market Areas e-Health EU Recommendation for interoperability Introduce the Electronic Health Insurance Card EU Patient Smart Open Services large scale pilot funded Sector-specific networks of Contracting Authorities to foster demand for innovation Sustainable construction 2nd generation of Eurocodes Screening of national building regulations SMEs guide on collaborative working schemes in construction Protective textiles Inventory of all relevant standards Revision of the PPE Directive Training platform for buyers and users On the left hand side, you see that we identified 6 markets. 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 region For this region, check are: Franche-Comté Automotive % %***MediumStrongFranche-Comté Metal % %**MediumWeakFranche-Comté Finance % %*MediumWeak But 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 products Product performance standards Inventory of legislation affecting bio-based products FP7 call on bio-refinery pilot plants Recycling CEN Packaging Standards Waste Framework Directive Financial support (CIP) for market replication projects Renewable energies Adopting minimal energy performance requirements Mandatory national targets for 2020 Guide on funding available for RE demonstration and pilot projects Lead Market Initiative 09-12’ Policy tools 8

19 Implementation of the project - important
Current activities 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);

20 Implementation of the project - important
Current activities 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: 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 activities 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.
