II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Procurement will take the form of pre-commercial procurement (PCP), where R&D service contracts will be awarded in parallel to different R&D providers in a phased approach. This will allow alternative, competing solutions to be compared. Each selected supplier will receive a framework contract covering three R&D phases.

The three phases are: solution design, prototype development, original development and validation and testing of a limited volume of the first products or services. After each phase, interim evaluations are conducted to progressively select the best of the competing solutions. The contractors with the best quality and value for money solutions will be offered a specific contract for the next phase. Price will not be the only award criterion and all criteria will be stated only in the procurement documents.

All interested operators are invited to take part in the upcoming open market consultation (regardless of their geographic location, the size or governance structure of their organisation). The open market consultation will be organised in the form of a series of meetings. It will provide you with an overview of the procurement objectives, the PCP process and the main clauses of the contract. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions. The first series of meetings will be held online by each of the procurers mentioned under Section I.1). During those meetings, the procurers will offer presentations in their own local languages, namely Turkish, Italian, Greek, and Portuguese, except Region Jämtland that will conduct the event in English. These meetings are planned to take place in June 2021: 10th Jämtland, 15th Turkey, 15th Naples, 17th Thessaloniki, 18th Lisbon. The meetings will be followed by an additional international online event, 29 June 2021, in English. Registration and agenda for these meetings will be announced on the website https:/ on 27 April 2021. Interested participants are encouraged to subscribe to the project mailing list, embedded at the bottom of the website, to stay tuned about project updates.

Testing is expected to take place in Sweden (Regions Jämtland Härjedalen and Västerbotten), Greece (Thessaloniki), Italy (Naples and Salerno), Portugal (Amadora), and Turkey (Istanbul). This testing may also serve as a first customer test reference for the contractors.

The selected suppliers will retain ownership of the intellectual property rights (IPRs) they generate during the PCP and will be able to use them to exploit the full market potential of the solutions developed, i.e. beyond the procurement.
