Abstract: This report discusses the findings of a study carried out by JRC-IPTS which aimed to assess the status of public technology procurement in the EU member states in terms of size, evolution, drivers and barriers. As the study was exploratory, it cannot be claimed that the results are conclusive. However, they have clarified several important points which are worth considering in the policy-formulation process. The public sector has the potential to positively influence innovation and R&D through public procurement. It provides a sufficient and stable demand for innovative products, thereby reducing the risks associated with innovation for suppliers. It also acts as the main or first user of new products or services. Thus, public procurement can be most influential in the early stages of the life-cycle of a product, promoting emerging industries.
