PROCURA project team is kicking off its Public Procurement of Innovation with the publication of a Prior Information Notice (PIN) in the Official Journal of the EU (OJEU).
By publishing this short notice, the team project intend to provide all potential interested economic operators with relevant information on the tender coming that is called: "Public Procurement to Procure Innovative Socio-health Solutions for Active Aging and Independent Living".
The estimated date of publication of contract notice is September 16th 2019 and an Open Market Consultation will be opened by June 14th (more information will be provided by these dates on the website)
By making use of a PPI we allow contracting authorities to act as a launch-customer of innovative goods or services which are not yet available on a commercial basis in the market to cover some specific identified needs.
The procurement, which will shape the third phase of PROCURA project, will be devided into two lots : a smart walker and a more adapted toilet.
The supply provision model will be centralized at the Gerencia de Servicios Sociales de Castilla y León, while the demonstration stage for testing and validating the functional prototypes will be implemented in 3 different territories : Castilla y León (Spain), Limoges (France) and Coimbra (Portugal).
