Supporting cities to implement public procurement of innovation while providing practical tools created using AI technologies and gamification methods


PPI4cities intends to support the cities in BSR region to improve their public services and achieve their ambitious innovation goals through developing pragmatic tools, which would facilitate the uptake of public procurement of innovation. It will do so by bringing together a portfolio of capacity building material and tools that enable the various actors of the cities to exploit structured content and move forward faster and with greater confidence and certainty in adopting PPI.

It will work on development of physical as well as virtual tools based on artificial technologies and gamification techniques in order to improve the engagement of the stakeholders and the target group into the development and piloting of the solutions.
