Tender>> Market consultation


In preparation of the PCP call for tender, an Open Market Consultation (OMC) with potential tenderers and end-users will be held to broach the views of the market about our scope.


The purpose of the OMC is to canvass wide stakeholder opinion on the suitability of RELIEF PCP. The OMC is an essential part of the preparation of the PCP Challenge. With the market consultation, the consortium gets an insight into the market; the state of the art and future developments in order to prepare an adequate procurement with the right and feasible scope.

The output of the OMC will give a broad insight into the current state of the art of the RELIEF proposed system. It will allow contributors to give feedback on what technologies should be included in RELIEF, where they see the biggest technical challenges and what more information should be shared in order to make scope of the challenge clearer. The results of the consultations will be fully documented and taken into account in order to detail the tender specifications.
