The Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CNECT) is a Directorate-General of the European Commission which is responsible for managing the Digital Agenda. To benchmark the national innovation procurement investments and policy frameworks across Europe, DG CNECT is holding a final workshop on October 12 on the study that benchmarked the national policy frameworks and expenditure on innovation procurement across Europe.
First results on the benchmarking of the 2018 study were published in 2019 and this workshop will present the final results of the policy framework and investment benchmarking, that includes an analysis of innovation procurement investments across different sectors of public interest (e.g. health, transport, security etc.) and strategic expenditure categories, in particular ICT, that fuel public sector modernization. The workshop is planned to take place in an online webinar format.
So do hold the date of October 12 if you are interested in how much the public sector in your country invests in adopting innovative solutions compared to other countries, in which sectors they invest the most and whether they have an action plan, target, financial incentives or competence centre for boosting innovation procurement.
