Help us shape the Dutch trade mission to the Smart City Expo 2018 in Barcelona!

The Netherlands will once again travel to the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC) 2018 in Barcelona from 11 to 15 November 2018. The Expo is the meeting place for companies, entrepreneurs, start-ups, cities and research centers active within the Smart City sector. Just as last year the Dutch will be present at the Expo with a Holland Pavilion as well as organize a pre-day filled with workshops and site visits. We are busy building the program and the set up of the Holland Pavilion and we are eager to hear ideas for it from companies that went last year or are interested in going this year. Drop me a line if you wish to help make the Trade Mission even better than last year!

Tender EV Charging Infrastructure Network Manchester

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) owns the Greater Manchester EV Charging (GMEV) Network. Due to an increasing demand for charging points and changes in the performance of EVs and battery capacity, this network has come under pressure. TfGM has therefore initiated a formal tender for a 3-year contract - with a possible extension of 2 years - to (re) design, build, install, manage and maintain the GMEV Network. During this period, the long-term expectations for the Network will be examined as the market for charging points and EV will continue to mature in the coming years.

More information about the tender can be found in the attached document: GMEVPaperWMT

TfGM has indicated that it wants to get in touch with Dutch companies with the right expertise and offers to Skype for a Q & A. Dutch companies that are interested please contact Marjolein Bouwers (m.bouwers@nbso-manchester.co.uk of the NBSO in Manchester.

The missions are organised by the Directorate-General (DG) for the Environment of the European Commission and aim to build bridges between European institutions, NGOs and companies and the relevant stakeholders in those third countries, interested in the opportunities that the transition to the circular economy brings.

These initiatives have the potential of strengthening existing and creating new ties between the EU and third country institutions in the field of environment, as well as supporting green European businesses - especially SMEs- to expand their activities abroad. .
