Public Procurement for Innovation in Small States. The Case of Latvia
AbstractPolicy-makers in the EU have recently increasingly emphasised public procurement as a policy instrument to stimulate innovation. Public procurement is seen as an instrument able to fill in the gaps in the existing innovation policy-mix, thus helping to maintain competitive advantage of EU Member States in global competition. Public procurement has been widely covered in research, however, its application in a context of a small state has remained largely uncovered. This paper thus aims at bridging this gap, by analysing the potential smallness-related constraints to implementation of public procurement as a policy instrument. The empirical part introduces the case study of Latvia.
