The European Commission has recently stressed out the importance of public procurement for fostering innovation within the European market. Some calls for proposals will soon be launched in order to finance procurement of innovation. Other kinds of actions are implemented in order to promote the purchase of innovative products by public procurers. It is the case of the Prisme project. The coordinator is the Grenoble Chamber of Commerce, member of the Enterprise European Network.

In the framework of Prisme partners are organizing on January 17th, 2012, some face to face meetings between public buyers and SMEs.

The objective is to enable SMEs to present their solutions/products, during a 30 to 45 minutes face-to-face meeting, to potential public customers. Public buyers will be able to select the companies they that will meet them, according to their special needs and expectations.

The Lyon, Grenoble and Ile de France (Paris area) hospitals have already given their approval for attending such a meeting in Grenoble. The event is also open to   foreign public hospital (not private clinics).  It will a good  opportunity to meet other transnational buyers in the health sector, and maybe to find some new suppliers, especially as far as innovative products are concerned.
