ACTIVITY INFORMATION
Project description

Public procurement can be a key tool in driving the development of innovative goods and services on the European market. The concept is based on the need to combine the purchasing power of public administrations – bringing them together in strategic partnerships to maximise their market impact, lower costs, help introduce innovations into the market, and help scale-up good solutions.

The Big Buyers Initiative presents an opportunity for public authorities to engage with other authorities across Europe and to shape new innovative solutions to their procurement needs. ICLEI and EUROCITIES are currently running the initiative on behalf of the European Commission, DG Internal Market, Industry Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW). The initiative works together with existing networks and organisations active in this area. To put these goals into action, three working groups have been established, with over 40 participating cities, which meet regularly to work on relevant procurement topics. The first group focusses on electric vehicle procurement, the second on circular construction procurement, and the third on zero emission construction vehicles. The groups meet regularly and ICLEI together with EUROCITIES provides faciliation and organises market engagement for the groups to achieve their goals.
