Procurement of Innovation platform



Innovation procurement in Italy is set to receive a boost from its soon-to-be-established competence centre Consip; already a public joint stock company held by the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance. A well-established company based in Rome, Consip’s involvement in Procure2Innovate will ensure that Italy will strengthen its international network on innovation procurement, professionalise its consulting services and explore the use of financial incentive schemes.

Consip primarily undertakes consulting and assistance in procuring goods and services for public administrations. In fact, the company is especially active as a central purchasing body. Other activities for Consip include managing complex and innovative projects in the sphere of public administration and supporting individual public administrations throughout procurement processes.
