Tools and other resources

A number of resources have been developed through InnProBio to assist European public entities in their purchasing decisions and actions when it comes to bio-based products and services.

Many of these resources are integrated into an interactive online Toolbox. The InnProBio Toolbox aims to assist public procurers in their procurement processes and contains (among others):

  • ­Factsheets about the bioeconomy and bio-based products
  • A Products Database
  • Texts for inclusion into tender documents ('text blocks')
  • Roadmap of procurement instruments
  • Information on product labelling and public acceptance
  • Information on public procurement of innovation (PPI)
  • Good practice examples
  • Handbook (coming soon!)
