On 4 September 2013, the ENGAGED project – together with the Action Groups C2 Independent Living and B3 Integrated Care of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing – organised a mutual learning workshop on innovative procurement in Bari (I).
What are the tools of public procurement for the acquisition of innovative services and products for independent living and integrated care? Where do we stand today and how to raise awareness on innovative procurement?
The workshop analysed the current approaches and experiences from different European regions, allowing mutual learning and sharing practices among regional representatives and stakeholders. Participating regions identified good practices and explored how these could be replicated and scaled up across Europe to support the objectives of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing programme.
