Public Service Platform for Circular, Innovative and Resilient Municipalities through PCP
CircularPSP brings together 8 procurer cities, representing 45 million citizens, to invest €5.64 million in R&D. Funded by the EU*, the end goal is to support business processes and workflows to plan, procure, and implement innovative CE solutions across Europe. Sandyford Business District is pleased to announce its role as one of the procurers in this project.
The common challenge to be solved by suppliers is to design, develop and test a digital public service platform enabling and empowering municipalities to transition the city to circularity with the help of taxonomies, AI and NLP. The funding will be offered as part of a multi-stage pre-commercial procurement (PCP) procedure, and we are looking forward to announcing the tender’s release learn more here. Join our Newsletter.
