The Procure2Innovate Network to introduce itself at the 30th RESER Congress

Next January 22, the Procure2Innovate Network will host a special session as part of the 30th RESER Congress, focused on value co-creation and innovation as new dynamics shaping services today and aimed at improving the transformative power of services in modern societies: new avenues for a new services world.

Three competence centres for innovation procurement will join the session starting at 11.15 am (CET) to present some good practices that have taken place in Germany, Spain and the Netherlands. Marlene Grauer, International Project Manager - KOINNO, German Competence Centre for innovation procurement, will let the audience know what the situation in Germany and how they are supporting public buyers to push innovation procurement. Next, Beatriz Torralba, from the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI), Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (Spanish Competence Centre for innovation procurement), will analyse the scenario in Spain and present several initiatives that have taken place during 2020 to encourage pre-commercial procurement processes. Rolf Zeldenrust, Senior Advisor Innovation Procurement from PIANOo (Dutch Competence Centre for innovation procurement) will then share some insights about the Dutch situation.
