Event agencies have gone through a crisis. Which one of them dares to “Europa Experiences”?

Scenography and Service planning framework contract for the Europa Experiences and other facilities (Open procedure – ref.no.: COMM/AWD/2022/23)

European Parliament, Directorate-General for Communication, Directorate for visitors

Contract duration: max 5 years

The total maximum value of the framework contract is €10.200.000

Description, purpose and estimated value of the contract: Building on a pre-existing standardised Europa Experience Franchise, the successful bidder will notably be requested:

* to provide scenography and planning service from the early feasibility study to the reception of a new exhibition. The services comprise – inter alia – interior design, functional design, media planning, tendering, contractors’ coordination, works supervision and project management services (including the specification, coordination and supervision of works) for the rollout of the Europa Experience franchise in the EU Member States;

* to design innovative new exhibition elements for the Europa Experiences, or any other (visitor) facilities, including the modernisation of existing exhibitions and coordinate their implementation;

* to provide certain architectural, design, graphic and accessibility related services and advice.

Background: After the first pilot in Berlin (2016), Europa Experience exhibitions opened their doors to the public in Ljubljana (2017), Strasbourg (2017), Helsinki (2018), Copenhagen (2019) and Tallinn (2020). Parliament aims at completing the rollout of Europa Experiences in all remaining 21 Member States’ capitals by 2024, i.e. implementing new visitor facilities in Paris, Prague, Rome, Warsaw, Stockholm, Madrid, Vienna, Riga, Bucharest, Bratislava, Vilnius, Zagreb, Lisbon, Athens, Dublin, Sofia, Luxembourg, The Hague, La Valetta, Budapest and Nicosia. The order of implementation depends on the identification of suitable premises in each location and the subsequent negotiation of the relevant lease and fit out contracts. The scope of the framework contract also comprise the development of new media stations and content and the redesign of some existing exhibitions, notably the first Europa Experience pilot projects. Depending on the time of award of the present contract, the selected tenderer will be expected to work on a subset of these projects.

The successful tenderer may also be expected to contribute to the development of other (visitor) facilities, as well, including:

* The House of European History in Brussels (https://historia-europa.ep.eu), part of DG COMM and the Jean Monnet House (https://www.jean-monnet-europe.eu). The House of European History, which opened in 2017, houses a permanent exhibition and a periodically alternating temporary exhibition. It currently develops a concept for travelling exhibitions with the intention of launching the first travelling exhibition outside Belgium in the course of 2023. The Jean Monnet House in Bazoches, France contains – inter alia – a permanent exhibition.

* The successful tenderer may also be expected to contribute to the development of the European Parliament’s new visitor centre, currently under development in the Stefan Zweig building. The visitors centre is planned to open mid-2022, and will welcome visitor groups to a state-of-the-art facility with hybrid seminar rooms, interactive displays with multimedia content, Virtual Reality activities and other experiences. Additionally, the framework contract may be used for continuing development of the visitor experience in the currently in-use facility in the Paul-Henri Spaak building. Both locations are managed by the Visits and Seminars Unit (VISSEM), part of DG COMM. VISSEM welcomes groups and individual visitors to the European Parliament in Brussels, offering a number of activities including talks about Parliament and its work, visits to the Hemicycle, a multimedia guided (app) tour and activities specifically developed for school and youth groups.

* Furthermore, the Visitors Services Coordination Unit (VSCU) of DG COMM contributes to the implementation of a unified Visitors’ Strategy in the European Parliament, pooling resources, fostering communication and implementing tools for the promotion of the EP visitors offer. In this context, it has among others opened three welcome points for visitors (Station Europe, Zweig Welcome Centre and an info point) and worked on the embellishment of Parliament’s campus for visitors. Such tasks could have to be performed again, and the framework contract may thus be used for the update of existing and the design of new facilities, temporary exhibitions, ad-hoc and mobile furniture, media stations and other installations.

Drupal support services for the EIT Health Connections Platform

European Institute of Innovation and Technology (an agency of the European Commission), Munich

Closing Date: 30 May 2022

Key objectives:

– A cohesive and recognisable visual identify for the Connections platform

– A defined platform value proposition with clear use cases for the Partner community

– An improved user experience and user journey

– Greater customisation and personalisation opportunities (at admin and user level)

– Advanced platform capabilities including improved communication tools and analytics

– Integration and greater interoperability with EIT Health Platforms and data systems.

Background. Connections is an online platform which aims to facilitate innovation and collaboration across the EIT Health ecosystem. It is an interactive area for EIT Health partners to access vital parts of their membership, enabling them to: discuss future projects, exchange learnings and insights, and be a part of the vibrant EIT Health network. It is also a space to find vital partnership and Business Plan process information (legal, administrative, financial) and other useful guidance content. Additionally, Connections provides regular updates and information regarding activities, news, and events that are deemed of interest to the Partner community.

EIT Health Partners The partners of EIT Health comprise approximately 150 leading organisations from business, education, research, and health service delivery. Representatives of these partner organisation constitute over 80% of the users of the Connections platform. These representatives are external to the EIT Health organisation, and so are not regulated by standard EIT Health systems, and IT processes.

In 2020, following a review of our key operational platforms and business processes, EIT Health embarked on the development of Connections 2.0, a relaunch and redesign of the previous community platform. The objective was to design and launch a platform which is easy to use, offers partners a straightforward way to access information, effectively promotes connections, interactions & collaborations between our network of partner organisations, and fosters a sense of community.

The solution, launched in Q4 2021, is a bespoke Acquia based Community Platform that meets the essential needs of our community, and which provides a strong foundation on which to build.

This Platform is hosted and maintained via an ongoing contract with Acquia, who ensure that the platform remains fully operational 24/7, 365 days a year. The platform is hosted via Acquia Cloud Plus and Acquia Site Studio. The contract with Acquia will continue to run in parallel to this new contact with the selected Economic Operator.

As of 2022, the core features of this platform include:

– A member database with the capability to search & view employee, partner, and other community members’ profiles,

– Events and News pages to list and share upcoming activities

– A Marketplace to share project ideas & proposals, make offers, and highlight needs

– A public discussion forum

– Working groups (public and closed)

– Dedicated sections with access to information on calls for Business plan Proposals, branding toolkits & guidance documents

– A community live feed

EIT Health would like to continue to strengthen this platform through the further development of features and content which encourage platform usage, facilitate matchmaking and networking opportunities, and increase the uptake of the platform through an improved user experience. These features and content streams should add value to partners and help them get the most out of their membership. Therefore, to support the ongoing maintenance and development of the Connections platform, EIT Health seeks to award a framework contract for the delivery of services. The exact specification of the services will be set out in detailed Statements of Work (SOWto be issued by EIT Health on the basis of the framework contract.

The total value of services expected to be procured over the two-year period of the contract will not exceed EUR 160.000. Invoices are to be submitted by the economic operator following the completion of each Statement of Work.

Interaktivní a dřevěná. Brusel potřebuje vyrobit “chytrou” zeď pro své návštěvnické centrum. Cena €300 tisíc

Tendr: Pořízení dřevěné interaktivní chytré zdi v rámci nové komunikační koncepce návštěvnického centra Evropské komise

Zadavatel: Evropská komise, Generální ředitelství pro komunikaci (COMM), COMM.B.4 – Experience Europe, Brussels

Stručný popis: Pořízení dřevěné interaktivní chytré zdi v rámci nové komunikační koncepce návštěvnického centra Evropské komise, včetně návrhu koncepce, obsahu, instalace a údržby této zdi.

Smlouva na max 48 měsíců / budget €300.000

Deadline pro odevzdání nabídky: 20/4

Popis: The overall objective of the contract is the design, the creation and installation of an interactive wooden wall, including the tailored design of the wall, the definition of the necessary IT material, as well the purchase and installation of the necessary IT/Audiovisual equipment, for the European Commission Visitors’ Centre. The wooden wall should be made touch-sensitive using the latest sensor technology.

The tenderer must also define and create the content of the wall and the way it will be displayed on the wall, by the tenderer. The testing of the user-friendliness, the training of staff including the provision of a training manual, as well as the maintenance of the smart wall, are also part of the contract.

Background and objectives: The Visitors’ Centre of the European Commission1, located in the Charlemagne building, in Brussels, aims to give visiting groups an insight into the work and functioning of the European Commission and to explain its policies, priorities and the value added of the EU through information visits tailored to their interests. Visits for groups consisting of a minimum of 15 people aged 15 years and above currently range from 90-minute general information presentations to tailored information visits for high-level groups and key multipliers lasting up to one and a half days.

Works to modernise the Visitor’s Centre premises are ongoing, and expected to conclude in spring 2022. The renovation works are managed and executed internally by the Office for Infrastructure and Logistics of the European Commission (OIB). The architectural concept follows the principles of the New European Bauhaus and the proposed materials, as well as the look, are sustainable and respectful of the environment at all stages of its lifecycle.

The communication concept of the Visitors’ Centre will be in line with the architecture.

This includes the replacement of the current communication tools in the exhibition area of the centre with modern and interactive communication stations.

The main feature of the main hall in the Centre was the “Timeline”. It is a curved, fabric, back-lit wall, which illustrates the history of the European integration process through its various Presidents. Being made of fabric, this static installation has to be re-printed to be updated. Hence, it is not possible to integrate the latest communication campaigns into this tool on a regular basis. The content of the Timeline focuses on the history of the European integration and highlights the achievements of each Commission mandate led by its President, also making a reference to parallel milestones of European and global politics, economy and history.

Final installation of the Visitors Centre’s Timeline

Timeline -1880 cm (length) x 225 cm (height). Height from the floor to ceiling = 239 cm

As part of the new communication concept, the “timeline” (pictured above) should be replaced with an interactive smart wall to be purchased under this contract.

The interactive wall and its content must underline and enhance the new communication concept of the Visitors’ Centre as a dynamic space, giving a forward-looking overview of the Commission’s political priorities. It must be easy for the contracting authority to update the wall with the latest communication campaigns.

The wall should serve to increase engagement with visiting groups. The wall has to be smart, digital and be able to provide an interactive experience for visiting groups. Visitors should be able to modify its content with movement, gestures, touch or with their mobile devices. The wall should allow the Commission to present informative content in an interactive and immersive way. When the visitor touches the surface, it should activate and form the content into separate screens. The wall could be divided into four surfaces (or segments) side-by-side, forming a uniform image. This would enable browsing through four different contents at the same time – in 4 different languages (English, French, German and Dutch), according to the visitors’ requirements.

The wall will be the main communication station of the renovated Visitors’ Centre and it should have a ‘wow’ effect.

Detailed characteristics of the purchase: The measurements of the wall should be approximately 1880 cm (length) x 225 cm (height). Height from the floor to ceiling = 239 cm.3

The surface of the wall must consist of wood and the chosen material should be in line with the architectural concept of the Visitors’ Centre as described in annex 7, even when in stand-by mode. As mentioned above, the proposed materials, as well as the look, must be sustainable and respectful of the environment, in line with the European Green Deal and the new European Bauhaus.
