Within the framework of the PPI4MED project, the National Agency for the Promotion of Scientific Research (ANPR) in Tunisia is launching two calls for expressions of interest to broaden participation in the national Public Procurement Innovation (PPI) Living Lab intended for researchers and innovators as well as companies in the water and/or energy sectors.
The living labs of the PPI4MED project on public procurement of innovation are an open and dynamic platform. These meetings aim to connect the country’s entire innovation ecosystem, researchers, public purchasers and private companies to find solutions to major challenges such as, in this case, the field of water and energy.
The deadline for submission is 15 August 2022.
The PPI4MED project aims to create and demonstrate a model to transfer results from NRCs to public buyers, industry, SMEs and people through the co-design of solutions in 5 national and 1 cross-border living labs and the implementation of 12 real PPI processes to raise awareness of policymakers to include PPI as a strategic instrument to transfer results as part of the science policy in each concerned country.
