Public Funding for Cooperation Projects with the Private Sector – Start of 1st Tender in 2014
The 1st tender of the Private Sector Fund in 2014 has started! We welcome all interested private sector companies and organizations to submit their project proposals until 30 June.
The Project’s overall objective is to facilitate harmonization of Chinese and international quality infrastructure and to further reduce technical barriers to trade. In addition, the cooperation with the private sector forms another important pillar of the project. For this purpose, the QI Project has set up a public fund for supporting innovative projects by the private sector that focus on key topics within the quality infrastructure framework, including product safety, market surveillance, conformity assessment, production conditions and market access. Project proposals in related areas that also contribute to the harmonization of Chinese and international quality infrastructure and the reduction of technical barriers to trade are considered likewise.
The QI Project reserves the right to divide the annual fund budget among several bidders who have successfully submitted suitable project proposals. Please note, only project proposals with a private sector share of at least EUR 50,000 are accepted and the maximum funding for each company is limited to EUR 200,000 within the project’s entire contract period.
For more information on the detailed requirements, tender procedures and application forms of the Private Sector Fund, please visit our tender webpage at http://www.giz.de/en/workingwithgiz/bidding_procurement.html.
The Private Sector Fund will be opened twice a year for interested companies to submit their project proposals.
Please submit your completed application documents by 30 June, 2014 as stated in the tender documents to participate in the current tender.
We are looking forward to receiving your project proposals.
