II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The procurement will take the form of a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) under which R&D service contracts will be awarded to a number of R&D providers in parallel in a phased approach. This will make it possible to compare competing alternative prototypes.

Each selected operator will be awarded a framework agreement that covers three R&D phases as well as a phase 1 contract. The three phases: 1) solution design, 2) prototyping, original development and 3) validation and testing of a limited set of first products or services. After each phase, intermediate evaluations will be carried out to progressively select the best of the competing solutions. The contractors with the best-value-for-money solutions will be offered a specific contract for the next phase. Testing will take place in the buyers' facilities This testing may also serve as a first customer test reference for the contractors.

The procurement is expected to start: 1.3.2017 and to end: 30.11.2020. The Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) will have an estimated duration of 45 months. The future contract notice will provide additional information including the estimated duration per phase.

The selected operators will retain ownership of the intellectual property rights (IPRs) that they generate during the PCP and will be able to use them to exploit the full market potential of the developed solutions i.e. beyond the buyers group. The future contract notice will provide additional information on the licenses granted to the buyers group.

II.2.14)Additional information

In preparation for this PCP, all interested operators are invited to take part in an open market consultation (regardless of their geographic location, the size or governance structure of their organization). Participation is voluntary without reimbursement of any cost.

The market consultation involves the proactive analysis of technology offer and provide a pre-information to the market in orde.
