PPI4cities

In the project PPI4cities, public authorities learn how to build a smart city by designing innovations already at the procurement level.
Project summary

The PPI4cities initiative aims to empower cities in the Baltic Sea Region to enhance their public services and realize their ambitious innovation objectives by crafting practical tools. These tools are designed to facilitate the uptake of public procurement of innovation.

Given the multitude of innovations that could enhance urban life, the project is committed to guiding cities every step of the way, addressing diverse economic, environmental, and social challenges while seeking intelligent solutions. To achieve this, the initiative will curate a range of capacity-building resources and tools hosted in the digital platform PPI4cities.eu, enabling city stakeholders to access structured content and progress swiftly and confidently toward implementing smart city solutions through PPI. 

Moreover, the initiative functions as a dedicated network for BSR cities, fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange in the realm of public procurement of innovation. Through activities such as peer exchanges, networking, and training, the project endeavors to secure political buy-in and enhance collective expertise, empowering cities to prioritize PPI in their smart city strategies. Throughout the project duration, developed solutions will undergo real-world testing in urban settings to evaluate their viability and effectiveness for target groups. Project partners will also engage in support activities to amplify the BSR-wide impact of these solutions on PPI, facilitating their dissemination to a broader audience within the target group.
