Call for Tenders: MARINE-EO Project
Tender Submission Deadline is 9 April 2018.

EurOcean Member FRCT (Azores, Portugal) is involved in the Marine-EO project, the first Pre-Comercial Procurement project in Earth Observation, funded by the EC.

The project has entered the “Call for Tender” phase and aplications are welcomed from interested companies and consortia around Europe to bid in one or more of the thematic areas and services available.

In this sense, the Marine-EO consosrtium would like to count on your entity/institution to join efforts in disseminating this opportunity to invite all interested parties to present their offers to bridging innovative downstream earth observation, and Copernicus-enabled services for the integrated maritime environment, surveillance and security.

The challenge:
The aim of Marine-EO procurement is to develop, test and validate a bundle of innovative EO downstream services bringing incremental or radical innovations in the field of maritime awareness leveraging on the existing Copernicus Services (i.e. CMEMS, Security) and other products from the Copernicus portfolio.

In addition, a series of “support” services will standardize the way that EO is used for maritime awareness with regards to operational, technological, semantic and legal interoperability issues. The Marine-EO procurement seeks to cover the sea-basins of Mediterranean, Atlantic, and Arctic, by adapting Copernicus data and information in order to meet the demand of the buyers group.

The total budget for the PCP is 2.769.106€ (VAT excluded).
