Description of call
"Preparing for pre-commercial procurement (PCP) and/or public procurement of innovative solutions (PPI) in support of climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials"

Pre-commercial procurement (PCP) and public procurement of innovative solutions (PPI) are effective demand side innovation actions, since they enable public procurers to drive innovation from the demand side by acting as technologically demanding first buyers. This helps to improve the quality and effectiveness of public services and at the same time stimulates opportunities for companies to create, maintain or take international leadership in new markets.

Innovation-oriented public procurements (PCP and PPI) are key to fostering lead markets and generating a critical mass of demand for solutions and services addressing climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials challenges. Barriers to these kinds of public procurement include the absence of cross-border coordination and lack of access to best practices and to knowledge of close-to-market innovative solutions.
