Save the date - Cross-border Innovation Procurement in Health

Designing, procuring and deploying innovative solutions is an important component of every public sector modernisation strategy, especially in the health and care sector. However, EU health service providers face many challenges, such as funding, a fragmented legal framework, lack of common standards or interoperability and varying user/patient preferences across the EU. Participants in this workshop will discuss how such challenges can be addressed through existing EU instruments.


Through this workshop on Innovation Procurement in the area of Health we expect to attract a relevant and representative audience (procurers, potential suppliers, regions or umbrella organisations and regulators) to discuss how such challenges can be addressed through existing EU Innovation Procurement instruments in the area of health, such as Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) and Public Procurement of Innovative solutions (PPI).

In addition, the new PCP & PPI funding opportunities for 2020 will be presented and a discussion with stakeholders will be held on how to best design and implement successful projects. A networking session is foreseen during the event.
