Innovation and research results are services based on new knowledge and very specific in their production and valorification with higher costs than usual merchandises.
Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) is an important tool which aims to close the gap between cuting-edge technology and processes and the public sector customers and users who can benefit from them.
These was the reason IFIN HH together with Magurele High Tech Cluster invited representatives from research area and industry to a discution upon PPI procedures and can these be changed to obtain better results.
A short introduction has been done by Mr Ioan Ursu, project manager he introduced to the audience the project RI2 Integrate - Embeddedness of high quality research infrastructures in the Danube Region, under whose umbrella the event took place.
