InnProBio, the Forum for Bio-Based Innovation in Public Procurement, aims to develop a community of public procurement practitioners interested in innovative bio-based products and services.

By harnessing the potential of public procurement to foster innovation, InnProBio aims to work with the public sector to develop tools for purchasers, facilitate the creation of buyers groups, and increase awareness and incentives in order to lower the barriers to purchasing. Thus leading to the opening of new markets of bio-based products in Europe.

InnProBio is an EU funded three year project which began in March 2015. It is funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Programme.
