The InnoBuild project is divided into three phases:
Phase I will identify common procurement needs and potentially available solutions in the two municipalities and the Internal Market of the EU.
- The aim of this phase is to improve the procurement capabilities and innovation procurement strategies through market consultations determining state-of-the-art for innovative products or services across the EU market.
- Contextual characteristics such as energy efficiency and more sustainable use of building materials, and/or technical installations needed for the improvement of the services offered to senior citizens will be identified.
- The result will be a set of specifications for a joint public procurement of innovative solutions in the set-up of sustainable high-tech building projects for senior citizens in the two municipalities.
Phase II is the procurement implementation.
- The procurement will be based on a joint procurement agreement between the two municipalities. Rights and obligations of the parties to the agreement will be defined, and include legal considerations, feasibility and roadmap for collaboration across their national borders and the Internal Market of the EU.
- The aim is that the joint procurement process will result in an open public procurement of innovative products and services by the two municipalities in the Internal Market of the EU.
Phase III is the mobilisation to raise awareness of the results amongst local, regional and national policy makers, procurement authorities and producers of goods and services on the supply side.
- The aim of this phase is cross-border and cross-sector learning and endogenous capacity building in the two municipalities.
- The project will result in a handbook describing the actual procurement processes and project’s outcome.
