InnProBio aims to stimulate demand for bio-based products and services in Europe

The EU-funded InnProBio project will increase the number of public procurers equipped to carry out the procurement of innovative bio-based products and services, leading to better purchasing practices. With the public sector controlling around one fifth of European GDP, public procurers can significantly influence demand for, and investment in, renewably produced products.

The 2014 EU Procurement Directives have made it easier for public procurers to purchase innovative goods and services, but many remain unsure of how to start the process. Through the project, procurers will be provided with much needed guidance and support tools, while standardisation bodies will be enlisted to offer definitive information on products that carry the “bio-based” tag. Joint trainings, workshops and other networking activities will be held in the scope of the project, with a focus on training those who are in a position to retrain others in their locality.
