EIC launches SPIN4EIC Strategic Innovation Procurement Programme
The European Innovation Council (EIC) is launching the SPIN4EIC Strategic Innovation Procurement Programme, an initiative dedicated to delivering support services to EIC innovators. Its purpose is to enhance their ability to access procurement markets both in Europe and worldwide. The programme is committed to promoting the entry of outstanding EIC innovators into procurement markets, generating broader prospects for inventive SMEs and startups. SPIN4EIC extends its dedication also to Private and Public Buyers, with support services tailored for procurement of innovation.
The Programme provides assistance to EIC beneficiaries through Innovation Procurement Academies and tailored assistance to take part as bidders in Public and Private sector tenders in and outside Europe. It also includes specific support to Public Buyers contributing to the enhancement of their capacity to purchase innovative solutions and fostering innovation in Europe. SPIN4EIC also provides for events bringing together key EIC innovators and buyers and including pitching sessions and matchmaking corners.
On the EIC Platform, EIC beneficiaries can access expanded business prospects by connecting with the demand side, and by receiving assistance in tender submissions for Innovation Procurements on both European and global scales. Public and Private Buyers interested in the innovations of the EIC Beneficiaries can receive support for procuring innovation and an active involvement in communities alongside procurers tackling similar needs. The programme will be presented at a launching event on 22 February 2024.
