Public-private partnerships (PPPs) stand as a cornerstone for fostering innovation within public sectors, particularly in areas like deep tech and open innovation. These collaborations between public authorities and private industry can accelerate technological advancements and address societal challenges more effectively.

Challenges in Establishing PPPs for Innovation
Public authorities face several hurdles in initiating and managing PPPs in the innovation sector. First, there’s the challenge of aligning objectives between public entities, which often prioritize public welfare, and private firms, which focus on profitability and innovation. Secondly, the complexity of deep tech projects requires a level of technical expertise and risk management that public bodies may not possess in-house. Additionally, creating an environment that nurtures open innovation while protecting intellectual property rights and ensuring equitable benefits can be daunting. Moreover, the procurement processes and regulatory frameworks may not be conducive to the flexibility required for innovative projects. Lastly, sustaining these partnerships beyond initial stages demands continuous engagement, trust-building, and adaptability to evolving technological landscapes.
