User Driven Innovation – Pre commercial Public Procurement for innovation
Public tender as driver for the innovation for a series of Research and Development activities aimed at the design, production and testing of prototypes of product / service not yet suitable for commercial use but that may soon enter the market once refined and industrialized.
Objectives: analysis of the PP as instrument to stimulate the innovative and competitive capability of the entrepreneurial system of Piedmont, with a closer look at the technical and procedural aspects to support the work in progress of Regione Piemonte Sustainable Energy Development Unit.
Conclusions: in Italy at the local level the results of the pubblic procurement for innovation are still heterogeneous and not comparable. There has been some experiments by Valle d’Aosta Region, Lombardy Region and the Province of Trento. It is necessary to intensify contacts to make a comparison on the common problems emerged from the analysis carried out during the meeting in order to make possible synergies for common solutions in terms of successful implementation.
