Benchmarking of national innovation procurement investments and policy frameworks across Europe
Save-the-date for the 12 October workshop that will present the final results of the first European wide benchmarking of national innovation procurement investments and policy frameworks.
DG CONNECT invites you to save the date of 12 October 2020 for the final workshop of the study SMART 2016/0040 that benchmarked the national policy frameworks and expenditure on innovation procurement across Europe. First results on the benchmarking of the 2018 national innovation procurement policy frameworks were already published in 2019 (more info below).
The workshop will present the final results of the policy framework and investment benchmarking, that includes an analysis of innovation procurement investments across different sectors of public interest (e.g. health, transport, security etc.) and strategic expenditure categories, in particular ICT, that fuel public sector modernization. The workshop is planned to take place in online webinar format.
