In the framework of PAPIRUS project an international workshop for EU funded PPI projects, was held on 19th November 2015 in Brussels. The aim of the workshop was to exchange knowledge, experience and share best practices on PPI implementation. The participants of the workshop represented the following PPI projects:
- Public Procurement Administration to Reach Ultimate Sustainability (PAPIRUS) - the overall objective of PAPIRUS project is to promote, implement and validate innovative solutions enabling the European community to achieve sustainable construction. The project implied an introduction of a new public procurement process focused on providing materials characterized by near zero energy consumption for the repair and construction of buildings in four European locations (www.papirus-project.eu);
- The Smart Procurement European Alliance (SPEA) project focuses on improving energy efficiency in municipal buildings in order to incorporate energy saving and renewable energy to these buildings and to develop sustainable management procedures in the cities of the European Community (http://www.speaproject.eu/, www.sustainablebuildings.eu);
- Supporting public procurement of building innovative solutions (PROBIS) - general objective of the project is to promote bidding through innovative solutions aimed at increasing energy efficiency and sustainability of European public buildings (http://www.probisproject.eu/).
The last session of the event was an interactive discussion regarding barriers and challenges that each project has experienced when implementing public procurement of innovation. Below is a summary of the results from the workshop and challenges that have been discussed among the representatives of the PPI projects. We hope that these findings and lessons learned will help you to plan and implement PPI projects and minimize in time the challenges they carry.
