A total budget of circa €130 million was available under different 2016-17 Horizon 2020 Work Programmes to support groups of procurers that joined forces to implement joint cross-border Pre-Commercial Procurements (PCP) or Public Procurements for Innovative Solutions (PPI) (see an overview of the process and the calls available).

The European Commission collected data from key public procurers with potential interest in procuring new innovative solutions during the previous years. The results will help the EC to prioritise these needs in the upcoming years, in view of allocating funding for calls under the next Horizon 2020 Work Programme (2018 – 2020).
