EARSC Workshop PCP/PPI in Horizon2020 Projects on Earth Observation

Estimated Article Reading Time: 1 min.

Innovation procurement can deliver solutions to challenges of public interest and EO services providers can play a major role in this; therefore EARSC and BHO legal are organizing a workshop next 3rd of December in Brussels on the subject of PCP (Pre-Commercial Procurement) to guide companies on how to approach the H2020 call EO-2-2016.

The PCP approach puts funds in the hands of procurement bodies which wish to find innovative solutions to problems which they face. It is an approach which started in the US and which is now being taken up by Europe with some enthusiasm. We consider that it is an excellent opportunity to get public players using EO.
