A call for tenders will be sent soon to 5 candidates identified by the European Commission for a service contract of a maximum value of € 60,000. The objective is to award a contract for supply of a suitable venue and support services for a high-level awareness event which the European Commission is organising (together with Europeana Foundation and the Danish Presidency) in Brussels on 9 May 2012. The main aim of the event is to raise awareness of Europeana's rich resources among citizens and to demonstrate that online cultural heritage is a driver of creativity and digital innovation. The event starts with a seminar with the senior leaders of European memory organisations and leading figures from the creative industries, followed by a ceremony involving President Barroso, Commissioner Kroes, MEPs and the EU Ministers responsible for cultural and audiovisual affairs and concludes with a reception.
