This insightful book provides readers with a practical and theoretical explanation of the ways in which the new, tailor-made Innovation Partnership Procedure can be used throughout all Member States in the European Union. Pedro Cerqueira Gomes argues that innovation is a crucial policy of the EU that must be extended to public procurement.

With a focus on the Procurement Directive for the public sector (Directive 2014/24/EU), the author explores the ways in which this new EU legislative framework has succeeded in transforming this legal subject into a driver of innovation. The author explains and analyses in detail the fundamental characteristics of the Innovation Partnership Procedure, while also investigating whether the EU will be capable of increasing the levels of innovation procurement in public sectors of all Member States. Issues and elements of the procedure that can be viewed as challenges of the EU harmonisation process are also considered throughout.

Thought-provoking and thorough, EU Public Procurement and Innovation will be a key resource for practitioners, lawyers and consultants in all Member States looking to better understand how to use the Innovation Partnership Procedure within the EU law and legal framework.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book is a must read for everyone that aspires to innovate through public procurement and for everyone that is interested to know the details and particularities of the Innovation Partnership Procedure. Not only the content of the procedure is analysed but also the politics behind it. More general topics like innovation and harmonisation are discussed so that the reader obtains a broad overview regarding the possibilities to innovate by using public procurement.’
– Sarah Schoenmaekers, Maastricht University, the Netherlands

– Roberto Caranta, University of Turin, Italy
