Innovation and research results are services based on new knowledge and very specific in their prodution and valorification with higher costs than usual merchandises.
Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) is an important tool which aims to close the gap between cuting-edge technology and processes and the public sector customers and users who can benefit from them.
These was the reason IFIN HH together with Magurele High Tech Cluster invited representatives from research area and industry to discuss upon PPI procedures and how these can be changed in order to obtain better results during the Matchmaking event of industry and government on Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) organized in the framework of the RI2Integrate (Embeddedness of High Quality Research Infrastructures in the Danube Region) project (http://www.interreg-danube.eu/approved-projects/ri2integrate) at IFIN-HH Library on July 8th, 2019.
Dr. Ioan Ursu, project manager, introduced the project RI2 Integrate - Embeddedness of high quality research infrastructures in the Danube Region, under whose umbrella the event took place.
As it is to be expected, project ELI NP is one of the beneficiary of the proposed PPI procedures.
At the moment, Romanian legislation has several specific rules for procurement for innovation.
Some of these regulations were explained by Mrs. Corina Lungu, Public Procurement Coordinator, ELI-NP in her presentation Public Procurement of Innovation in Romania - overview of the legal framework and practical application.
Mr Jan Satachura representing ELI BEAMLINES, Czech Republic, author of public procurement on innovation utilization guide, the guideline for aiding the RI related business ecosystem and the roadmap for community dissemination presented to the Romanian audience the conclusion upon PPI procedures, based also on some case studies. His presentation was on ”Public Procurement of Innovation concept - an introduction and overview of legal framework”.
