IMAILE project launched the first Pre-Commercial Procurement process in the field of education in November 2015. The call for tenders aimed to acquire research and development services of educational ICT based solutions to support personalised learning environments in both primary and lower secondary levels with strong focus on the STEM subjects.
INNOVA Észak-Alföld Regional Development and Innovation Agency Nonprofit Ltd. organizes a training seminar to promote innovation procurement methods (both Pre Commercial Procurement and Public Procurement of Innovative solutions) and the results of project Smart@fire that has used PCP instrument to develop 21. century firefighter gear.
Every year, more than 100 firefighters across Europe lose their lives while saving others. The Smart@Fire project (2012–2017) aims to reduce the risks inherent to firefighting. To lower these risks, innovative ICT-solutions need to be developed and integrated into the Smart Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or Smart Personal Protective System (PPS) of the firefighter.
IMAILE successfully managed the main activity in the second project year 2015: launching the call for tender and start the PCP stages by awarding and contracting selected suppliers. But also other activities were implemented and events took place.
On 30th November 2015 ended the deadline to submit proposals in the framework of the first PCP launched by the IMAILE project.
IMAILE (Innovative Methodts for Award Procedures of ICT Learning in Europe) is the first project at European level that addresses the area of ICT in the field of education and e-learning from both the demand and the supply side. Enabling a dialogue between the demand and supply sides will allow research and innovation to focus on the actual needs of the end–users (our European schools, teachers and students) by equipping them with the tools they need to bring the classroom into the 21st century.
IMAILE consortium consisting of 4 procurers at the EU level has identified a common challenge of increased demand of personalized learning in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) for primary and secondary school. This challenge will be the basis of a pre-commercial procurement worth 3.8 million euros open for European suppliers during 2015.
