The INNO-Partnering Forum (IPF) was an INNO-Net. It was established as a project under the auspices of the European Commission (DG Enterprise and Industry) for the period 2009–2012.

The aim of IPF was to identify, develop and exploit synergies between public innovation agencies in Europe and propose new approaches to innovation support for SMEs. 
The project in particular explored and tested new ways of service delivery, aiming to accelerate the take-up of the most advanced innovation mechanisms with proven efficiency and impact. 
IPF was carried out by a consortium consisting of the following six Taftie Member organisations: Vinnova (SE, co-ordinator), Tekes (FI), Technology Strategy Board (UK), Enterprise Ireland (EI), NL Agency (NL) and FFG (AT).
