Culminatum Innovation Ltd Oy EU PreCo-project: Innovative Pre-Commercial Public Procurament / eHealth

  1. 1. Suzan Ikävalko Culminatum Innovation Ltd Oy EU PreCo-project Innovative Pre-Commercial Public Procurament / eHealth
  2. 2. What is PreCo? • A coordination action funded by the FP-7 program of the European Commission aiming at ”Enhancing Innovation in Pre-commercial Public Purchasing Processes” • Consists of ten partners from seven EU countries, leadpartner and coordinator Cuminatum Innovation Ltd Oy (Finland).
  3. 3. PreCo actions • Benchmark: Collecting and analysing best practices • Facilitate discussion between procurers and suppliers. • Establish a thematic network of experts on PCP. • Identify common ground for guidelines, policy recommendations and PCP strategies. Delivered to the Commission by the end of 2011. • Joint events and public PreCo website www.preco.share2solve.org
  4. 4. PreCo aims to identify • How public authorities can achieve highly innovative solution through greater market engagement ( In cases where all the aspects of the procured item are not known initially, but can only be established by a collaborative R&D process ). • Thematic focus on eHealth and eEnergy • Approach - User driven open innovation (procurer, suppliers and users), pilot procurements in EU Member States
  5. 5. What is PCP? ( COM 2007:799)
  6. 6. Important aspects in PCP • Risk-benefit sharing - the procurer does not own the results, opportunities for SMEs • Competitive development in phases - Curiosity driven exploratory research, followed by phases where solutions are step-wise selected or abandoned, • Separation of R&D phase from procurament of commercial volumes of end-products - allows the public procurer to find the best possible market /user driven solution
  7. 7. eHealth PCP practices in Europe, preliminary findings • PCP projects are still rare at least as text book cases. Mixed elements from Public-Private Innovation, Market Dialogue, PCP and Commercial regular Procurament are used. • PCP is used in complex product-service systems - in thematic fields such as health, elderly and social care. • Total solutions are procured more often than components.
  8. 8. Procurement of eHealth PCP process can help to specify, design and procure innovative ICT solutions as well as complete healthcareservices, which include ICT. Interoperability is not a technical problem as such - Public procurers need to have : • Knowledge and willigness to DEMAND and PROCURE technically interoperable solutions • Resources: Long term perspective (cost/benefit) in stead of short term cost reduction.
