Resource Bank: Unlocking the Power of Innovative Procurement Knowledge

The PROCEDIN Resource Bank, crafted by our consortium partners, emerges as an essential source of support and guidance for those dedicated to advancing the circular economy and green mobility.

While acknowledging the abundance of existing development resources, including training materials, best practices, and case studies, the partners recognise the challenges posed by the complex and fragmented resource landscape. The PROCEDIN Resource Bank is the response to this challenge, providing a central hub of relevant and high-quality resources, simplifying the learning journey for individuals and organisations.

In addition to streamlining access to materials, the consortium partners aim to propel successful innovation procurement initiatives related to circular economy and green mobility. This is a critical step in achieving the Green Deal and ensuring societal resilience.

To optimise user experience, the Resources for Public and Private Organisations section is thoughtfully structured into two distinct categories: Resources for Buyers of Innovation and Resources for Suppliers of Innovation. This strategic categorisation ensures swift access to materials aligned with specific roles and objectives, eliminating inefficiencies associated with sifting through unrelated content.

Through intuitive filters that encourage exploration across categories, the Resource Bank facilitates a dynamic interaction, allowing buyers to gain insights into supplier-related materials and suppliers to comprehend buyer perspectives. This collaborative approach fosters a holistic understanding of the innovation procurement landscape, promoting effective engagement among all stakeholders.
