EWRC 2019: Implementing Smart Specialisation in Energy through Innovation Procurement

09/10/2019 09/10/2019
The main aim of the workshop is to help public authorities, procurers, policymakers, researchers and other stakeholders harness the power of innovation procurement to facilitate more quickly a clean energy transition and at the same time create opportunities for their local companies. A pro-innovation procurement approach - using both public procurement of innovative solutions (PPI) and pre-commercial procurement (PCP) tools - could be more widely developed in the field of energy in order to influence the market towards innovative and more sustainable energy-related products and services. The focus will be given on regions and member states that have selected energy as a priority in their S3 and could use their ESIF to steer innovation in energy.
