This volume addresses different issues related to green innovation procurement as well as exploring the challenges involved in public procurement. The studies offer a broad array of perspectives, addressing both general, abstract problems of optimal public procurement and concrete cases of national or even local public procurement systems. The evidence presented covers a variety of different countries including, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands and several African countries. Reflecting the different areas of expertise of the authors, the studies draw from Economics, Engineering, Law and Organization approaches to public procurement and use both theoretical and empirical methods to produce a comprehensive analysis. Accordingly, they contain policy suggestions that are likely to be useful for the design of policies in these areas of public procurement, which are hotly debated topics both in the policy and academic circles."--"@en ;
