Call for expression of interest (2012-2015)

The Directorate-General for Climate Action has published a new Call for Expression of Interest for the period 2012-2015. Calls for expression of interest (CEI) – in French "appels à manifestation d’intérêt" (AMI) - serve to invite economic operators to put themselves forward as candidates in advance of a public procurement operation by a contracting authority. The shortlists generated this way may be used and updated many times for different procurement procedures.


The current AMI list will expire on 15th January 2015.  No new Call for Expressions of Interest, with view to establish a new list, will be launched after 15th January 2015.

DGs Environment and Climate Action will continue procuring services through Open Calls.  Information on these calls is published in our Funding pages under "Calls for Tender".

Providing the Commission with a list of pre-selected candidates for future contracts

The purpose of this call is to provide the Commission with a list of pre-selected candidates who could be awarded with contracts in connection with activities related to the policy areas of the Directorate-General for Climate Action.

Please note that this Call for Expressions of Interest is run jointly with DG Environment so if you have already applied through the website of DG Environment, you do not have to apply again.

    The general principle is that economic operators are free to organise themselves as they wish, i.e. they can submit a single or joint application, with or without subcontracting. When an operator (legal or natural person) submits a single application and includes CVs of persons not employed by it, these persons are always to be considered as subcontractors. The attached questionnaire should only be completed if your application involves a joint application or is relying on the expertise of non-contractual staff or subcontractors.

For any questions, you can send an email to or tel.: (+32-2) 299 34 21.
