Commission Notice — Guidance on Innovation Procurement - Publications Office of the EU (europa.eu)

Resource summary

The purpose of this Notice is to offer practical guidance on innovation public procurement. This guidance document presents in a concise manner the fundamental aspects of innovation procurement: why it is important, who has interest in it and how this process can be done.
The document reflects the responses received in a prior public consultation. The level of detail has been deliberately chosen so that it reaches the widest professional public (buyers, policy makers and suppliers) and triggers interest in those who never thought of it, those who never felt concerned. Even the most advanced readers will find useful references to the recent initiatives and examples.
This Guidance is therefore designed as follows:
Chapter 1 clarifies the innovation procurement concept, its overarching dimension and added value.
Chapter 2 outlines the policy framework that is necessary to make strategic use of innovation procurement.
Chapter 3 illustrates how to open the doors of public procurement to innovators, including start-ups and innovative SMEs.
Chapter 4 describes how to put public procurement procedures at work to modernize public services with innovative solutions and to create growth and jobs, namely with regard to the management of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).
Chapter 5 refers to certain criteria that innovation procurement should fulfil to avoid granting State aid to a supplier
Annexes provide practical information to buyers on IPR, and tools to help buyers organise meetings with suppliers.

This Guidance could be a source of inspiration for all actors involved in public procurement:

  • public procurement officers
  • final users of the procured solutions
  • decision-makers and policy makers whose contribution to creating favourable conditions is key
  • suppliers who can learn how to compete better with their innovative solutions in public procurement

EURIPHI Reflection Paper 'Applying a value-based approach to innovation procurement in healthcare' - Euriphi

Resource summary

Public procurement can be a strategic tool to ensure that innovation enables patients to be in good health and to innovate the delivery of care, unlocking sustainable, resilient healthcare. However, due to budget limitations and spending reviews over past years across Europe, group purchasing organisations and centralised procurement bodies alike seek to buy in large volume, with an emphasis on spending reductions. This one-dimensional cost-based approach has brought unintended consequences for patients, healthcare professionals, as well as for our broader society and economy. This paper will focus on the topic of applying a value-based approach (as a means to ensure BPQR and MEAT in healthcare) to innovation procurement, i.e. the value-based procurement of innovative solutions.


It illustrates how the adoption of value-based innovation procurement brings opportunities to innovate healthcare delivery, addressing inefficiencies, avoiding unnecessary costs of care, while investing in personalised, high value quality, integrated care to the satisfaction of patients and caregivers and society alike.

Resource summary

This guide focuses on public procurement as part of a broader innovation strategy and explains how public procurement can motivate innovation.


Guide on dealing with innovative solutions in public procurement 10 elements of good practice for finance, for knowledge transfer and support for small business, for intellectual property management and for a high-quality regulatory environment.


This guide provides supportive elements for decision makers who want to develop and implement a public procurement policy that promotes innovation. It builds upon concrete examples that have been identified by practitioners and widely discussed with public and private experts. They reflect the current state of information on public procurement practices within the EU Member States that need to be adapted to national and local conditions by the relevant authorities at that level and to be implemented accordingly. In this respect, this guide should be considered only as a first step towards more favourable conditions for innovation through public procurement, requiring a continuous exchange of practical experience and full political commitment.


The PRO INNO Europe initiative offers further scope for implementing this guide, for example by creating a network of excellence between practitioners, sharing experiences and creating common services. In that context, the topics treated in the guide may be further developed and also promoted through the development of a user-friendly web site. In addition, the STEPPIN network on standards in procurement under Europe INNOVA will identify how governments can stimulate innovation by making reference to standards in their tenders. More of such practical steps are needed to fully exploit the possibilities of public procurement to contribute to achieving the objectives of innovation as part of the growth and jobs strategy.

Resource summary

Public procurement means more than just buying; it means investing.
Public procurement rules no longer deal just with ‘how to buy’; they are also concerned with ‘what to buy’. Increasingly, it is recognised that making good use of taxpayers’ money is about more than merely satisfying the primary needs of public bodies. The public rightly want to know not just whether a solution procured with public money is formally compliant with the rules, but also whether it delivers the greatest added value in terms of quality, cost-efficiency, environmental and social impact and opportunities for suppliers.
Public procurement as leverage for start-ups and start-ups as leverage for a better world. Public investment and innovation are both essential to meet the challenges of the post-pandemic recovery, the green and digital transitions, and the creation of a more resilient economy in the EU. As standardbearers of innovation, start-ups – and especially the most entrepreneurial and imaginative among them – can bring significant innovation into the public sector.

Resource summary

Learn how to find organisational needs that require Innovation.
In this document, InnoBuyer gives procuring organisations some clues for demand-driven innovation, which starts with unmet need identification. These insights come from years of experience in the field of open innovation and innovation procurement by the InnoBuyer partners: F6S, Ticbiomed and Civitta.
Procuring more innovation is essential for economic growth and society's well-being
Investment and innovation are essential to meet the challenges of the post-pandemic economic recovery, the green and digital transition and the creation of a more resilient economy in the EU. The acquisition of innovation by public and private organisations enables, among other things, better and more efficient service delivery to citizens and customers. These organisations can acquire innovation via direct procurement from the market when a solution is available. However, public and private buyers frequently have unmet needs that require innovative solutions that are not yet on the market.
EU public procurement accounts for over 14% of GDP1, which could create a huge market for innovative products and services, and translate into industry growth, but its potential in this area remains underutilised.
Unmet needs should be in the driver’s seat.
Even if the supply side invests large budgets in innovation and new product development the impact of such spending is pointless if there is not a large customer base willing to buy those innovations (demand side).
Technology-push approaches have failed in many sectors because the developed solutions do not meet the requirements of customers. However, if innovation comes from a customer unmet need, there is a higher success rate, in terms of their application in practice and market uptake, because they have been developed side by side with the client.

Resource summary

Public procurement of innovation (or, simply, Innovation Procurement) is the purchase by a contracting authority / entity of new or significantly improved products, services, or works compared to those already available on the market.
Innovation may or may not involve Research and Development (R&D). R&D is only one of a range of activities that can generate innovation. Other activities, some of which may be closely related to R&D without however meeting all the R&D criteria, may be conducive to innovation as well, e.g. software development, engineering, design work, etc.

2 Frascati Manual 2015, OECD, Chapter 2.4 https://ec.europa.eu/docsroom/documents/45975
3 R&D can cover activities up to the original development of a limited volume of first products or services in the form of a test series. R&D does not extend to commercial development activities such as quantity production, supply to establish commercial viability or to recover R&D costs, integration, customisation, incremental adaptations and improvements to existing products or processes. For details, please see the Communication “Pre-commercial Procurement: Driving innovation to ensure sustainable high quality public services in Europe”, COM(2007) 799 final.
Although R&D may be conducive to innovation, it is not innovation itself. The results of an R&D process have to reach the commercialisation phase in order to be considered
innovations. A prototype, for example, is not innovation. Public procurement of innovation should not be confused with public procurement of R&D: whilst it may involve R&D activities, as in the case of an Innovation Partnership, its ultimate end is to acquire innovative products, services, or works ready to be commercialised.
