The aim of the project is to promote green public procurement for innovation with a sustainable and environmental approach. It is financed by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. The main objective will be realized through the collaboration of innovation agencies from Hungary (IFKA), Portugal (National Laboratory of Energy and Geology of Portugal LNEG) and Spain (Extremadura).

Throughout the one year long project state of the art of policies, methodologies, experiences and good practices will be revised, identified and developed related to Green Public Procurement for Innovation (GPPI). The kick-off meeting was held by the Spanish partner in Badajoz, where Eszter Tanka represented IFKA’s Green Economy unit .

Public procurement for innovation (PPI) occurs when public authorities act as a launch customer for innovative goods or services, offering the enterprises the opportunity to provide innovative and technological solutions by means of contracts in procurement processes.

In this way and till the end of 2019, with an environmental and sustainable approach, the project will promote a dialogue on how GPPI efforts and impacts can be reinforced through a joint learning process of the three partners and will elaborate a desired scenario to help regions to achieve a sustainable model for this kind of procurement, which represents approximately 19% of European GDP.

The project will intend to help public authorities to achieve environmental targets fostering business innovation to increase their competitiveness and stimulating new environmentally friendly products and services.

The keys are– aligned with smart specialisation strategies - the peer learning activities, knowledge transfer and exchange with stakeholder involvement, favouring SMEs participation.

The identification of experiences and good practices among the three countries will contribute to the development of regional pilot actions to facilitate knowledge exchange and networking between procurers and SMEs.

All the progress regarding the project will be published on our website regularly.
