context

Murcia’s RIS3 incorporates innovation procurement (inP) among its main lines of action since its creation in 2014. As a result, several inP projects have been carried out in the region.

One of the strategic objectives of the updated 2021-27 RIS3 is to promote innovation among the public sector with an “Innovative Public Procurement” program. The main priority areas are agrifood (including water management and environment), marine and maritime industry, energy and chemical industry, and healthcare.
