  • WaterPIPP is about explo-ring new public innovation procurement methodolo-gies and testing it in the water sector unlocking the European Unions Innova-tion potential.

    This project has received funding from the European Unions Seventh Framework Programme

    for Research and Technological Development Under Frant Agreement n 619069

    Procurement of innovative waterrelated services and technologies is often unde-rexploited in the public sector due to fragmentation. The aim of the Water PiPP project is to help change this and bring together the demand and supply sides in order to create innovative solutions. The Water PiPP project was designed to gather a group of partners composed of public organi-zations, procurers, knowle-dge institutes and facilitators.

    Public procurements represents around 19% of the EUs GDP, an important lead market for innovators in particular in the water and climate change sectors. Innovation procurement of products and services can:

    - be used to deliver societal objectives requiring new solutions, not available on the market or too expensive,

    - solve problems related to the commercialization of innovative solution,

    - improve quality and eciency of public services with a better value for money.

    The Water PiPP project will test new approaches to stimulate the innovation uptake in the water sector. It will last three years (01/2014 to 12/2016) to reach the following objectives:

    - Gather experts and practitioners in the area of water procurement to facilitate exchange of knowledge- Act as an information hub providing the latest and most relevant information about the procurement of inno-vative products and services in the water sector (but not only),- Create a community of practitioners who can openly discuss the procurement of innovative products and services in the water sector.

    This will contribute to unlock investments and deliver the solutions needed by the public sector to face water challenges. The process will also contribute to speed-up the development and the deployment of innovative solutions creating at the same time market opportunities for water innovation solutions.

    The project outcomes will serve as a best practice model for the European public procurement community.

    The scope and the complementarity of the Water PiPP consortium members - public organisations, procurers, knowledge institutes and facilitators - shows high potential for bringing together the demand and the supply sides for innovative solu-tions.

    A liaison committee composed of the key actors of the procurement innovation chain will help connecting the project with the market ecosystem.
