A 2 hours webinar for European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIH)

Public procurement is an important driver for the digital transformation of public sector organisations and enterprises. As European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIH) are a bridge between public sector organisations and innovators, they are well placed to catalyse innovation procurement in their area.
Many EDIHs aim to accelerate the adoption of innovative digital solutions and stimulate also public sector innovation, but are still unaware about how innovation procurement could help them achieve those goals.

This webinar gave an introduction to innovation procurement and explained how the European Assistance For Innovation Procurement ( can help EDIHs harness it to speed up the digital transformation.
Concrete examples of EDIHs that are already planning innovation procurement activities and lessons learned of successful innovation procurements were presented. The webinar also providee the opportunity for EDIHs to discuss which could be interesting innovation procurement activities to develop and how to collaborate with other EDIHs on innovation procurement.
