The third webinar in the series was entitled ‘Stakeholder Engagement in Innovation Procurement’ and focussed on the preparation stage of the innovation procurement process. Stakeholder engagement is a key success factor in the process and we demonstrated how engaging stakeholders and end users supports the identification of a credible, outcome-based requirement. The webinar was delivered by Gaynor Whyles, director at JERA Consulting, EcoQUIP+ consortium member and expert practitioner, with practical case studies presented by EcoQUIP+ colleagues from Poland and Italy.
The case examples presented in this webinar demonstrate that innovation procurement can be used to support the development of both goods and services and highlight the importance of stakeholder engagement in creating a firm foundation for the innovation procurement by identifying the risks, ensuring the requirements are accurately defined and understood, supporting the acceptance of new models and technologies and building trust.
