Helix Nebula Science Cloud Pilot Phase, 6 February 2018, Bologna, Italy

  1. 1. Dirk van Rooy, Ph.D. Head of Sector Cloud DG CONNECT, European Commission Innovation Procurement & the Open Science Cloud Drivers of Europe's Digital Single Market
  2. 2. Why Public Procurement of/for Innovation (PCP, PPI)? • Studies (ECB, EC): biggest challenge for 'innovators', SMEs in particular, is not access to financing but finding first buyers. • In 'The Entrepreneurial State', Prof. Mariana Mazzucato argues that public procurements are the major initial driver behind company growth worldwide ( ) • Flash Eurobarometer 394: companies involved in PPI more likely win other public procurement afterwards (61% vs. 15%). ► Public sector as launch customer, helps innovators go to market and scale up; ► Demand driven innovation for public sector modernisation; ► Widened scope and value chain thru cooperation, common requirements,… Europe as a Digital Single Market in a global setting.
  3. 3. Participation from the supply side  Opening a route-to-market for new players/SMEs - 71% of contracts won by SMEs (SME lead bidder, bidding alone or with partners) - Compared to 29% average in public procurements across Europe  Help larger market players bring products to the market - 18% of contracts won by large companies as single bidder - 11% of contracts won by consortia of larger companies and SMEs bringing innovative products together to the market  Bringing science results to market - 28% of winning contracts have also a university/R&D center partner in consortium - Winning SMEs are also often university start-ups  Cross-border company growth - 34,6% of contracts won by bidders that are not from a country of any of the procurers in the buyers group (e.g. DE company working for UK+NL procurers) - Compared to 1,26% average in public procurements across Europe
