InnProBio website launched to help promote innovative bio-based products

21 October 2015

As of today, InnProBio, the Forum for Bio-Based Innovation in Public Procurement, can be found on the world-wide web at www.innprobio.eu. With the public sector controlling around one fifth of European gross domestic product (GDP), public purchasers can significantly influence demand for and investment in bio-based products, which can be “bio-based versions” of traditional products or novel products with entirely new and innovative functionalities and potential for new and existing markets.

The InnProBio website will provide a wealth of information and tools for public procurers looking at purchasing innovative bio-based products (products that are wholly or partly derived from biomass) and services which employ their use. Through this communication channel, the InnProBio team aims to help bridge the policy and practice gap by providing procurement practitioners with tools and other resources to assist them in their day to day work.

One of InnProBio’s primary aims is to develop a community of procurers, decision-makers and suppliers interested in the procurement of bio-based products. A Group which specifically focuses on this topic is now also available on the Procurement Forum. InnProBio is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
