The Science and Innovation Network allows collaboration on research and innovation ecosystems, the development of innovative businesses and dealing with challenges facing our society, being the UK one of the most innovative countries in the world. At the same time, the UK is working in partnership with key countries to increase productivity and economic growth, reduce poverty and expand opportunities for international business partnerships. In our shared work on transformative capacity building, reform and pilots in areas such as green finance, trade, energy, future cities, digital access, health and education, there are lessons we can learn and apply from innovative procurement - indicating how important the present report is.
The topic was identified as a cross sector challenge faced by different players in the Brazilian innovation system. The report will give an overview of UK Pre Commercial Procurement (PCP) theory and schemes, and future and developments. The aim of the report is also to introduce case studies and examples on how the UK and some European countries have implemented PCP and any issues encountered by them and how they have addressed. This will enable best practice insights into the Brazilian case, supporting the idea that public procurement can act as a tool for both delivering better services for society and boosting our economies by creating a more competitive environment for innovative companies.
