Take a step back to move forward
In 2018 the European Commission will conduct research on innovation-oriented procurement in Europe. The goal of this research is to collect quantitative data about the extent of innovation-oriented procurement and the division by sector in each European Member State. Contracting authorities will be approached for this after having published a European tender.
What is being asked?
After publication of a contract notice on TED the contracting authority will be asked by the European Commission to contribute to this research by answering a multiple choice question relating to the degree to which the call for tenders is actively asking for and/or is open to innovation.
