Procure2Innovate work featured in two magazines

The Procure2Innovate project, its objectives and activities, have been featured in the Spanish publication Equipamientos y Servicios Municipales, and in the European magazine European Energy Innovation. Both articles highlight the importance of innovation procurement to improve public service effectiveness and efficiency, solve problems and meet new needs with solutions not currently available on the market, as well as support start-ups and innovative SMEs to launch and grow.

“The Procure2Innovate network is a key mechanism for institutional innovation in the public sector. The network disseminates innovation procurement approaches across borders. Through this cooperation national competence centres can achieve synergies and offer better services to public procurers, especially allowing them to take more advantage of innovative suppliers in the common European market,” explained Marlene Grauer, international project manager KOINNO and coordinator of Procure2Innovate in one of the articles.

These articles help to disseminate the work the competence centres on innovation procurement are doing to a wide range of target audiences.
