As this is an R&D project, does it come with a risk of failure?
Risks always exist in R&D projects. However, in INCAREHEART they will be minimised with the clear definition of work and close collaboration between the procurers and suppliers.
Can a private hospital be a supplier or end user?
A private hospital can be a supplier. It cannot be an end user since the only end users in the project are the procurers.
Who will the tender evaluation committee consist of?
Experts from different backgrounds such as clinical, technical, project management, commercialization, etc. from all procurers.
We are preparing to submit a similar proposal to TÜBİTAK (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey). Does this constitute a problem?
Tenders that receive public funding from other sources will be excluded if this leads to double public financing or an accumulation of different types of public financing that is not permitted by EU legislation, including EU state aid rules. Compliance needs to be confirmed in a dedicated section of the Declaration of Honour on on/off Award Criteria when submitting a tender.
Are there any other websites besides www.incareheart.eu?
The project partners may disseminate different materials and information on their own channels. But the one and only official website of the project is www.incareheart.eu.
How many of the partners in a supplier consortium be from the same country?
The suppliers can be from any country in the world if at least 50% of the R&D and the principal R&D take place in EU or H2020 countries.
Will there be standard documents for tender application?
Yes. Administrative, technical, and financial application templates will be shared.
