Reference Number:  , Press Release Issue Date: Jun 19, 2020
 
Call for expression of interest to set up a list of vendors to provide independent and on-hand expertise on specialised services in the field of IP rights

EUIPO is setting up a list of economic operators interested in providing independent and hands-on expertise to foster IP cooperation and increase effective awareness in the field of intellectual property rights in both EU and non-EU countries.

The services will be related to the activities of EUIPO, the international cooperation projects EUIPO is implementing in different regions of the world (https://ipkey.eu/en and https://euipoeuf.eu/en) and to the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights.

The list will be valid for four years and the services may include economic, legal and enforcement studies on IP and non-IP matters, capacity building, technical assistance, academic research, outreach activities, development of guides, manuals and reports, monitoring and evaluation, comparative research and assessment, drafting of contributions to foster IP cooperation and increase effective IP awareness.

The notice of call for expressions of interest has been published on TED and EUIPO websites.

Interested parties are invited to submit an expression of interest (by electronic means via eTendering only) and EUIPO will draw up a list of vendors who have expressed their interest. Where a contract relating to the fields covered by the call for expressions of interest is to be concluded, EUIPO will invite all the vendors on the list, to submit either a tender (procedure in one step) or an invitation to participate followed by a tender (procedure in two steps).
