DUE Innovator II - Call for Proposal is now open for competitive tender
2008-07-18
The Invitation To Tender (ITT) on the DUE, "DUE Innovators II", Ref. AO5781 in the ESA Invitations to Tender, has been published today on EMITS with a closing date of 29 September 2008.
The European Space Agency (ESA) hereby invites all interested institutions, organizations and companies from DUE participating countries to submit a tender for the DUE Innovators II procurement. If bidders are not yet registered as an ESA bidder, they are invited to obtain access to EMITS by completing a questionnaire, which can be found at the indicated URL below, section Registration Request.

The Innovator II projects will give to the end-users, industry and research communities the opportunity to develop and demonstrate innovative Earth Observation services and products using existing ESA, ESA third-party mission and other EO datasets. These original projects, if successful, may constitute future large scale activities within the Agency's Data User Element programme.

The Innovators II application areas and service themes are open, but require a targeted end-user or end-user community that will directly benefit from these new services and products. At least one end-user entity shall be actively involved in each Innovators II project and will be responsible for providing the detailed service and product requirements, as well as support the interpretation and validation of the service products, and assess the adequacy of and benefits of the service.

Each project will be carried out over 18 months and will consist of three phases:

- Specification and demonstration;
- Implementation and validation;
- Evaluation and evolution scenario.

EO topics already covered by past or ongoing projects within the ESA DUP/DUE, EOMD, GSE, EU Framework Programmes or National programmes will not be considered for funding.
