    Abstract

    The inclusion of innovation as a policy objective in public procurement has increased significantly at public organizations over the last years. However, public organizations often struggle with how they should stimulate innovation through public procurement as there are many different ways possible and knowledge on the efficiency and effectiveness of different methods is relatively scarce and mostly based on case studies. In this study a combined approach of design science and engaged scholarship will be followed to (1) identify the factors that influence the impact of public procurement of innovation;(2) develop recommendations for including innovation in the public procurement strategy of municipalities and (3) develop tools that can be used in individual procurement projects.
