New article published on Innovation and Standardization activities of German firms participating in Public Procurement

18 April 2019

A new paper co-authored by Vtrek's Dr. Anne Rainville has been published in the Journal of Technology Transfer. The paper, entitled "Innovation and standardization as drivers of companies’ success in public procurement: an empirical analysis", is freely available here

The results of the empirical analyses based on German companies surveyed within the framework of the Community Innovation Survey show that being successful in product innovation and being engaged in standardization are significant positive predictors of companies’ success in public procurement. With implications for policy-makers and practitioners, this shows that public procurement is indeed open for solutions from companies active in innovation and standardization.
