Implementation of the European Youth Event 2018.
The European Youth Event (EYE) is an event initiated and hosted by the European Parliament biennially, since 2014, with the aim of stimulating active citizenship amongst young Europeans. Taking place at the European Parliament seat in Strasbourg, the EYE gathers thousands of young people, aged 16 to 30, and invites them to partake in discussions about topical issues with decision-makers and speakers with a wide range of professional expertise. It already took place twice, in 2014 and in 2016, with several follow-up hearings in the months after each edition. The third edition is scheduled for 25–26.5.2018. The contractor is asked to assist the EP with planning, organising and implementing all the logistical and organisational aspects of the EYE 2018, providing all the necessary know-how, services, logistics, materials, equipment, etc., in cooperation with the EYE project team, the internal EP services and the external partners.

Concepts should include, among others, a clear and detailed description of the process(es), the objectives of the work package, indicators, the coordinator of the work package and the full team, including subcontractors.
