The Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs commissioned a study on the uptake of emerging technologies in public procurement.

In 2019, the Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs which is the European Commission Service responsible for EU policy on the single market, industry, entrepreneurship and small businesses, commissioned a study on the uptake of emerging technologies in public procurement.

The study, which covers technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, robotic process automation, virtual reality and more, features:

  • a list of 96 projects where these new technologies have been explored or used by public authorities for procurement in 68 countries (as of January 2020);
  • 20 detailed case studies presenting the issue addressed, impact, cost, requirements and risks of particularly interesting projects;
  • a final study report including a detailed analysis and conclusions. This document presents the overall approach and findings, including 10 recommendations for the application of emerging technologies to public procurement.
