The Procure4Health project is a growing community of European Health organisations interested in procurement of innovation. The project's 33 founding members actively promote innovation procurement through knowledge sharing and capacity building, networking and matchmaking, identification of common unmet needs, and the launch of joint actions to address them as well as influencing policy on procurement of innovation. The community is open to new members.
Health Care Without Harm Europe supports the project to develop this community and is building a web platform for public and private procurers, as well as organisations interested in innovation procurement. HCWH Europe will engage the community through discussions, working groups, training, and networking events.
The Procure4Health project will support community members by providing:
- Capacity building: Be part of twinings, tailored training and peer-to-peer mentoring. Access a repository of resources, including market research, case studies. and best practices.
- Networking and matchmaking: Attend network and matchmaking events. Participate in discussion groups with other members to promote strategic topics.
- Collaborative innovation procurement: Participate in working groups, identify common challenges that require innovative solutions. Launch open market consultations for the identified challenges.
- Policy impact: Explore funding schemes to co-finance innovation procurement. Learn to develop an action plan. Influence policy at the European level for innovative health procurement.
- Resources: case studies, best practices and market research on key priority products and services.
The Procure4Health community platform is under construction, but European healthcare organisations interested in procurement of innovation can already register to follow the development of the project.
