Project ID: 43013
Funded under: FP6-SUPPORT

Abstract

During the last years the public sector in Europe has received much attention as regards to procurement. Reports have been conducted and recommendations have been given in order to enhance the purchase of innovative solutions by public authorities. As a consequence, the Member States are currently discussing public procurement of innovation as becoming part of an innovation policy.

The OMC-PTP project had as an overall objective to explore the potential of public technology procurement (PTP) as a new instrument to stimulate innovation by tapping the innovation opportunities that are present in the business-to-government market. Their final report concludes not only that PTP can be done but also offers insight as to how it can be accomplished.
