David Lund presented the BroadWay project during the “Procurement and Innovation” panel session as part of the 10th Community of User meeting on March 5th 2018 in Brussels.
Mr Lund described the progress made from the one-year BroadMap project, which represented the interests of 15 European countries and prepared the ground for a Pre-Commercial Procurement activity, to the BroadWay project, just validated by the European Commission to implement a pre-commercial procurement (PCP) to develop technologies to enable a pan-European interoperable broadband mobile system for public safety.
Through 5 different stories, the aim of the “Procurement and Innovation” session, was to provide an insight on the new instruments for the acquisition of innovation, identify the strengths and weaknesses of such instruments from the perspective of both sides of the market, identify success stories under the frame of EU funded research and innovation framework and, finally, to propose lines of action for the improvement of the market uptake of security research and innovation outcomes.
