European Commision Tender Projects
In contrast to grants, which are awarded to research consortia upon the successful evalution of their grant proposal, tenders are procurement procedures, which are launched when the European Commission (EC) wants to purchase a specific service, goods or work in exchange for remuneration.
EIBIR’s expertise in project management and experience in EC-funded projects under the 6th and 7th Framework Programmes was advantageous during the application phase of three EC tender projects: MEDRAPET, Referral Guidelines, and EMAN.
All tender projects were published by the Directorate-General Energy of the European Commission. The ESR, with the support of EIBIR, participated in all three tenders and was accepted to implement the projects.
