Innovation procurement has been on the European agenda for some time. And rightly so! It is a potentially powerful policy instrument to stimulate innovation and thus contribute to more performing governments, more competitive companies and solving societal problems.

The Programme for Innovation Procurement (PIP) is organising an international conference on innovation procurement on 19 and 20 March 2024 in Tour & Taxis, Brussels. This ON-SITE, IN-PERSON event is organised in close cooperation with the European Commission and the European Innovation Council. It is part of the Research & Innovation Week.

An international conference during the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union provides a unique opportunity to draw attention to this under-used innovation instrument. The conference will allow public buyers, policy makers and companies from Belgium and abroad to exchange experiences on the theory and practice of innovation procurement.
