“Influence future innovations according to your public actual needs in dialogue with suppliers”
You as public procurers are strong buyers and IMAILE is a great opportunity to learn more about the new PCP instrument that can be used in many sectors (health, energy, environment etc) and influence future innovations according to your public actual needs. The PCP process also supports you in increased technology development and reduces the risk in commercial tendering.
The resulting IMAILE innovations will revolutionise the education system in Europe!
Future plans – looking for procurer organisations
IMAILE partners are planning to prepare a PPI (phase 4) after ending our project in January 2018. In order to strengthen this work we work on a proposal to the following H2020 call: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/topics/ict-33-2017.html (theme A).
In the project we will create a network of European procurers for Education, detect common future demands, prepare a PPI & a PCP and create a roadmap that can accelerate the use and development of Education technology.
We search for procuring organizations who are interested in real innovation of the Education sector. Please contact Ms. Ellinor Wallin (Project manager of IMAILE) firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us before 15/3 2017.
