Event: Releasing the Power of Procurement (Brussels, 02 May 2019)

In the European Union, public procurement accounts for 14% of GDP demonstrating the high potential of public procurement to support policy objectives, to stimulate innovation and hence, jobs and economic growth.

Public procurement as a tool has largely failed to help administrations and companies cross the ‘valley of death’ for digital and data-driven solutions between small-scale experimentation and real-life scale-up across Europe. The net result is a European digital transformation with brakes on due to the inadequate risk profiles along the innovation cycles. Strategic cooperation and interoperability between public administrations across Europe can help to lower the risks for first movers while helping SMEs to create scalable markets for innovative solutions across Europe.
