About this call:

The available call budget is estimated at €4 000 000. The awarding authority plans to award two to three proposals.

The general objective of the Call is to enhance the internal market through public procurement of innovation contributing to the transition toward a more competitive, digital, green and social economy.

The European Commission is seeking innovations not yet commercially available on a large scale, but can be if public buyers unite as a launching customer and are ready to implement the innovative technology together with the supply side, particularly SMEs.

More specifically, the Call intends to support proposals that exploit public procurement as a tool to foster innovation where there is a strong public interest and the potential to generate a positive societal impact, in particular in the area of digital transformation, public health and green transformation.

Moreover, the successful proposals should contribute to capacity building and knowledge transfer on public procurement of innovation, thereby increasing the number of procurers involved in the process as participants, followers or observers and developing tools and knowledge for its replication.

Stay tuned and receive the latest details and call updates.
