The JERICO-NEXT Tender Watch Service provides a list of invitations to tender and contract awards from 2017 up to last month relevant to coastal observation. These are selected from trade journals such as Sea Technology, Ocean Systems, Ocean News and Technology, Marine News, and Maritime Reporter.
The objective of the Tender Watch is to identify the commercial opportunities (other than grant awards) for revenue generation from coastal observation and related science for the JERICO-NEXT Partners. The Tender Watch Service illustrates the range of sectors (ports, harbours, shipping, coast guard, environmental agencies, offshore engineering, dredging, offshore renewable energy etc ) that are contracting coastal observation services.
The service is intended to enable JERICO-NEXT partners to enter into public-private partnerships to tender for some of the large-scale international opportunities e.g. UNDP.
