Announcement of a negotiated procedure for a middle value contract delivering a foresight study on the Future of Assessment in Primary and Secondary Education (Prospective Platform)

The Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG EAC) announces a competitive negotiated procedure for the supply of study on the “Future of Assessment in Primary and Secondary Education”. The study should provide qualified rapid-response opinions in order to stimulate at European level a debate on the future of education and encourage new forward-looking policy ideas. The conclusions of the study are expected to present to Members States (MS) possible avenues for future policy development and to provide supporting elements for the reflections on the successor of Europe 2020 strategy and the "Future of Learning" agenda.

DG EAC will launch the actual procedure by sending out invitations to tender to all candidates (economic operators) who expressed interest. DG EAC reserves the right to send out the invitations to tender also to other candidates.
