This is the final report of the Mutual Learning Exercise (MLE) on 'Innovation Procurement’ which was carried out from January 2017 to May 2018 by 13 EU Member States and two associate countries.

Through public procurement, the public sector is a dominant first-buyer of products and services. Several EU Member States thus use public procurement procedures to accelerate innovation. Yet, for many procuring entities, this aim is not a core priority and thus despite its potential, innovation-related procurement is not yet fully used.
