Why Innovation Procurement (IP)?

IP in practice
Practice2

    Undertaking of the procurement process in a way that stimulates suppliers to invest in developing better, innovative goods and services to meet the unmet needs and policy objectives of the sector, and/or ensuring the procurement process, enables new solutions to compete on a level playing with established goods and services.

    IP is an effective way to boost innovation from the demand-side.

    IP is an efficient way to procure transnational common unmet needs.

    Procurers must become part of the innovation cycle by creating capacity in pro-innovation procurement.

    IP prevents usual practices that may constitute barriers to innovation, such as:

    • Too much emphasis on price
    • Variants no allowed
    • Too prescriptive specifications
    • General lack of demand for innovation
    • Poor management of risk
    • Inadequate management of intellectual property rights
