Turin market engagement event sees discussion on innovative solutions for buildings

7 August 2015

More than 75 people including representatives from 34 businesses attended a market engagement event organised by the City of Turin (Italy) and the EU-funded PROBIS project on 15 July 2015 to discuss the city’s desire to purchase innovative solutions capable of improving the sustainability of buildings. The meeting followed the publication of a Prior Information Notice (PIN) for the refurbishment and maintenance of a city-owned construction.

The PROBIS project aims to use public procurement of innovation as a means to increase energy efficiency and the sustainability of urban building stock. Four open public tenders concerning the use of innovative solutions to refurbish buildings are set to be launched by the project in Turin and Treviglio (Italy), Börlange (Sweden) and Miskolc (Hungary) in late 2015 and early 2016. Market engagement events will accompany each procurement procedure.

In addition to the events, market innovation surveys have also been launched to find out more about the innovative solutions that are currently available on the market. These surveys will help to shape the performance requirements of the procurements. The surveys have been developed by PROBIS’s project partners.
