Launch of the eafip Toolkit - Module 1

The eafip Toolkit aims to provide support to policy makers in designing PCP and PPI strategies, and to procurers and their legal departments in implementing such procurements.

The Toolkit consists of three modules:

  • Module 1: A strategic module addressed to policy makers, providing economic and case evidence about the impacts and benefits of PCP and PPI, together with concrete guidance on how to embed PCP and PPI into innovation strategies;
  • Module 2: An operational module addressed to public procurers aimed at clarifying the pre-requisites and key steps to design and implement an innovation procurement process (PCP and PPI); and
  • Module 3: A legal / operational module addressed to legal services aimed at clarifying legal issues and provide practical ‘how-to' guidelines, supported by templates.

For further information regarding the Toolkit, such as the overall context, the disclaimers and authors thereof, please visit the eafip website at


Module 1 of the eafip toolkit is online and can be accessed on the module page. Module 2 and 3 are currently under construction and will be launched in mid 2016.


On the eafip FAQ page you can find answers to questions that may arise when considering the implementation of an innovation procurement project. Also, the FAQ page provides definitions of the most commonly used terms in the Toolkit documents and will be regularly updated with the most common and representative questions raised by procurers.

The Toolkit will be adapted annually to take into account the most relevant FAQs.
