INNOVATION PROCUREMENT

iProcureSecurity PCP & PREVENT PCP Final Event

23rd of September 2024

 

Vienna, AUSTRIA

The iProcureSecurity PCP and PREVENT PCP projects joined forces to organise an innovation procurement dedicated final event to dive into the Pre-Commercial Procurement realm.

Innovation procurement has proven to be an effective tool, enabling end-users to continuously enhance their capabilities through innovative solutions in real operational settings. This event is a unique opportunity to gather knowledge on innovation procurement processes, with focus on the lessons learned by the procurers and the contractors who participated in two PCPs. The sessions have the broader scope to present successful practices and examples of innovation procurement in the security and disaster resilience domain, emphasising the challenges and opportunities faced by both suppliers and buyers.

The event encompasses the importance of innovation procurement in the sector of security and disaster resilience, bringing together the first-hand experiences of procurers in the two domains, showcasing the solutions that have been developed by the two projects, and discussing on practical ways forward for the exploitation and operationalisation of the innovative products across the Member States.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore the innovative solutions and engage in discussions on the future of EMS, mass casualty management, and security matters. This event promises to be an invaluable occasion for a number of stakeholders. Whether they are involved in emergency medical services and security or want to enhance their understanding and application of pre-commercial procurement processes and the cutting-edge solutions that have emerged from them.

This event is tailored for a diverse audience, including but not limited to: Emergency Medical Services (EMS), EMS organisations, Firefighters, Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs), Public Transport Operators (PTOs), security practitioners, policy makers, innovation procurement experts.
