One of the tasks of the PAPIRUS project is the training activities in the area of Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI). The main objective of these activities is awareness raising about the benefits of Public Procurement of Innovation and training of procurement and contracting staff across Europe on proper implementation of PPI.
Procurement of innovation helps public authorities to achieve more efficient and effective public services and provides more environment friendly solutions. As the total public spending is equivalent to 19 % of EU gross domestic product, public procurements is an important market driver and can be a tool in market transformation towards more sustainable solutions.
Therefore, in the framework of PAPIRUS project four training workshops focused on Public Procurement of Innovation and lessons learned from PAPIRUS procurement will be organized in Bilbao, Enzkreis, Oslo and Torino in the beginning of next year.
This training is dedicated for public procurers who are interested or plan on implementing PPI and want to learn from PAPIRUS project about the principles on which Public Procurements of Innovative Solutions are based.
During the trainings a Guide “How to implement Public Procurement of Innovation – lessons learned from the PAPIRUS project will be distributed. The training will provide you with useful information on PPI, market engagement, advice and practical tips that will hopefully help you in successful PPI implementation. More information will soon be provided.

The overall objective of the international PAPIRUS project is to promote, implement and validate innovative solutions enabling the European community to achieve sustainable construction. To achieve that goal, the pubic procurers have tried to address a new market, and request products directly from suppliers. The PAIRUS market events have been well visited by companies in all of the cities the public procurers in PAPIRUS operates. Some of the cities choose to have one-to-one meetings with the suppliers in addition to the market events.
Taking into account the number of companies attending the market events and meetings, the response on the tenders has been limited. As the total public spending is equivalent to 19 % of EU gross domestic product, public procurements is an important market driver and could be a tool in market transformation towards more sustainable solutions.
