BRINC – Brokering cross-border innovation through clusters
The COSME-funded project BRINC aims to spread the use of joint public procurement of innovation across national borders.
The project will facilitate concrete procurement of innovation and offer training sessions for public actors, SMEs and ‘InnoBrokers’ (organisations that can facilitate process and contact between innovative companies and public buyers).
The project will identify public innovation needs and facilitate market dialogues and procurement of innovation to help public actors to better exploit the innovative competences of SMEs. In addition, during the project, two networks will be set up for knowledge sharing and competence building for public actors and InnoBrokers respectively.
The phases of the project
In the first phase of the project, the needs of the public actors who are suitable for purchasing innovation are identified. SMEs will be involved in the market dialogue, and in the final phase will have the opportunity to bid for the final tender. Become a partner The project is currently looking for a partner who can develop and hold training for Innobrokers in facilitating the process around innovative tenders.
