EU Blockchain pre-commercial procurement call for tenders launched
The European Commission has launched the call for tenders for the EU blockchain pre-commercial procurement (PCP). The PCP will be carried out in cooperation with, and build on the work of, the European Blockchain Partnership (EBP), which is helping establish the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI). The EBSI is a European-wide blockchain network for delivering online public services to EU citizens.
The deadline for interested bidders to submit offers is 28 January 2021.
The purpose of the call is to develop new technical capabilities for the future version of EBSI that go beyond what current blockchain solutions can offer. This will support the implementation of various new use cases with high-volume and velocity requirements while improving the sustainability, interoperability and robustness of the EBSI.
Pre-commercial procurement (PCP)
PCP selects the solutions on the market that are the best value-for-money by awarding R&D service contracts to a number of solution providers in parallel. These providers then progressively develop solutions in phases, covering solution design, prototyping, solution development, installation and testing.
