What was crucial in implementing Public Procurement of Innovation under PAPIRUS project? What kind of challenges were faced by partners while implementing the tenders and what have they learned? The answers were given during PAPIRUS international final conference which was held on 29th September 2016 in Bilbao, Spain.
The conference was a chance to sum up the project among wider audience interested in PPI (Public Procurement on Innovation). Partners involved in PAPIRUS shared their knowledge gained during realization of the project in the last 3 years.
During the conference the audience had also a chance to hear representative of European Commission who talked about EU policy in regard to PPI and what kind of actions are planned in the nearest future to encourage public authorities to implement PPI.
We can show now the real experiences which makes PPI more credible for other state members when they think about implementation of PPI in their country – said Philippe Le Quement from European Commission.

PAPIRUS project had started in October 2013 and this is the last month of project implementation. Is there a better way to end o project than sharing the results achieved and lessons learned with future potential followers of PPI? PAPIRUS public procurers had held final national conferences in their countries in order to present the knowledge gained on PPI. The national conferences were held in Oslo, Torino and Mühlacker.
PAPIRUS international final conference was held in Bilbao. You can read more about it here.
More than 50 public procurers and representatives from the industry showed up when Omsorgsbygg invited to take a deep dive into the PAPIRUS project.
The project has been full of challenges and learning, project manager Lene Lad Johansen starts. Knowing what we do today we would have made some different early decisions. I think the most important lesson learned is that you need to use the market to define the solutions before you describe them in too much detail.
