The EC wants an agency to plug its Environmental Technologies Action Plan (ETAP) and has put a one to three-year contract up for grabs. The maximum value of the contract is just under £400,000.
ETAP – which is lead by Stavros Dimas, the European commissioner for the environment – aims to promote eco-friendly technologies. These reduce pressure on the environment and can create new jobs. ETAP promotes research and development and provides funding for the sector.
The program is supported by the European Forum on Eco-Innovation, which brings together business and policy specialists in an event that explores eco-innovation and environmental technologies twice a year.
