Last 25th of January an online pre-kick-off meeting was organised to launch the ProcuraMED project entitled “Innovative and Green Procurement towards the sustainable economy in MED area” from the Innovative Sustainable Economy Mission from the Interreg Euro Med program.

The project, funded under the Interreg Euro-MED programme, will last until March 2026 and aims at supporting the transition towards competitive, innovative, sustainable, and resilient ecosystems in the Mediterranean developing innovation capacities of enterprises and local authorities, and the uptake of advanced green technologies through Strategic Procurement Procedures.

It will upscale and transfer the tools, strategies, and network developed in the framework of previous Interreg-MED projects on green and innovative public procurement by:

1. Develop advanced training and tailored counseling to public authorities and enterprises to boost the process of green innovative technology application in public services that will be gathered in a Strategic Procurement Unified Platform.

2. Creating a Euro-Mediterranean coalition boosting value chain and transnational cooperation between public procurers (demand side) and private enterprises (offer side). The coalition, led by MedCities, will have the mission to support both the possibility for the enterprises to propose their green innovative product in a Euro-Mediterranean market and for the public procurers to have access to a wider offer of solutions to be applied for improving services for citizens.

To support the network MedCities will include a dedicated space in the MedUrbanTools platform to have a space in which experiences, best practices, innovative solutions, procurements approaches may be shared creating opportunities for discussion and collaboration.

Furthermore, MedCities will be responsible for the organisation of 1 international EXPO of Green Innovation at the end of 2025 to support innovative solutions development and market uptakes.

The Greater Irbid Municipality also participates in this project as an associated partner.

The project will organise a physical kick-off meeting during March in a project partner’s city to be confirmed.
