IMPRESS is a ground-breaking scientific project funded by the HORIZON EUROPE framework program for research and innovation. It aims to advance the field of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) by co-developing and delivering new and sophisticated instrumentation, methods and tools, which will change how TEMs are used by scientific communities. This project brings together 19 partners from 11 European countries, comprising scientists, companies, experts in the field of electron microscopy and research infrastructures, who will collaborate to address needs that are not yet satisfied by commercially available electron microscopes.
In the context of IMPRESS, CORVERS will support the implementation of a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) to design, develop and test an interoperable platform for TEM. We bring knowledge and experience in EU public procurement law, the preparatory steps for the PCP (needs identification, market analysis, open market consultation, business case), the development of the procurement and testing strategy, the draft of tender documents and contract award, and the contract execution.
