Call for Tenders related to the Directorate-General for Research & Innovation
Monitoring human resources policies and practices in research and assessing the impact of the 'scientific visa' package. CANCELLED
Date and Reference of publication in OJ: 22 December 2009 Ref. 2010/S 46-067205
Deadline for requesting documents: 26 February 2010 17:00
The invitation to tender N° RTD N°2009/S 246-351921 is cancelled (all lots).
The tender specifications were particularly based on the Commission Communication (COM(2008)317) on 'Better careers and more mobility: a European partnership for researchers' and the subsequent Council conclusions of 26 September (13671/08).
The situation has changed. The Council Conclusions of 2 March 2010 on European researchers' mobility and careers bring new perspectives which need to be reflected in the monitoring exercise.
The monitoring approach needs therefore to be reassessed.
The cancellation notice will be published in the Official Journal S/46 of 06/03/2010. The contract may be the object of a re-publication.
As mentioned in the contract notice published in the OJ dated 22 December 2009 - Ref. 2010/S 46-067205, the deadline for requesting the documentation in relation to the present call for tenders was Friday, February 26, 2010 and has now passed. It is therefore no longer possible to request the tender documents.
