The European Commission is starting an open market consultation for its very first pre-commercial procurement

The European Commission is inviting all interested market parties to participate in the open market consultation for its upcoming European Blockchain Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP). The PCP is looking for novel blockchain solutions for the European Blockchain Service Infrastructure. The open market consultation offers a unique opportunity to provide feedback on the scope of the future PCP and to be involved in and co-create the future development of EU-wide blockchain solutions.

The aim is to implement the Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) in cooperation with and building on the work of European Blockchain Partnership (EBP). The EBP is a cooperation between the European Commission, all EU Member States and some countries of the European Economic Area to deliver together the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI). The EBSI aims to deliver EU-wide cross-border public services using blockchain technology with the highest standards of security and privacy.

The open market consultation will be organised in English in the form of several activities:

  • Webinar (14/01/20)
  • Online questionnaire (16/01/20 to 02/03/20)
  • Open Market Consultation Event (11/03/2020) in Brussels, Belgium
  • Individual face-to-face meetings with the European Commission in the week of 11/03/20 in Brussels, Belgium
