InnoBuyer starts first pilot Co-Creation phase with nine Challenger/Solver pairs

Following a successful Open Call for Solvers that saw a total of 176 submitted proposals, nine of the SME’s that were selected have now joined the InnoBuyer project.

With its innovative approach, InnoBuyer is a testing ground towards the implementation of a demand-driven methodology, aiming to speed-up the process leading to a concrete innovation procurement.

Kick Off Meeting

Bringing together all the selected Solvers and Challengers, a Kick off meeting on the 25th of March, 2024 marked the start of the InnoBuyer pilot co-creation phase (Action 3). In this phase, that will last until January 2025, the Challenger / Solver pairs will develop, pilot and apply innovative solutions to concrete challenges in several sectors of the public domain.

Representatives from all the participating organisations, from more than 10 countries around Europe, gathered online to mark the start of their collaboration and lay the foundations of their action plans for the next 10 months.

Following a warm welcome from Stéphane Ouaki and Bertrand Wert from The European Innovation Council (EIC), Lucas de Bont from InnoBuyer’s consortium partner CIVITTA carefully laid out the journey ahead, successfully setting up the participants to embark on a fast-paced journey co-creating their innovative solutions.
