Open Market consultation

In preparation of the PCP call for tender, an Open Market Consultation (OMC) with potential tenderers and end-users will be held to broach the views of the market about our scope.

What is an OMC for?

The purpose of the OMC is to canvass wide stakeholder opinion on the suitability of eCare PCP. With the market consultation, the consortium will inform the market about the eCARE opportunities, explain in detail the PCP process  and open a dialogue with potential suppliers about the scope of eCARE. The aim is to prepare an accurate procurement with a feasible scope by finding out whether technologies are commercially available, learn more about the  advantages and disadvantages of coverage of the desired functionalities, and assess whether we should include other aspects not initially considered.

A technical dialogue with the industry. Come and innovate with us!


The Prior Information Notice (PIN) announces an open market consultation and provides information about a planned pre-commercial procurement (PCP) carried out by the eCARE project, addressing the delivery of disruptive  digital solutions for the prevention and comprehensive management of frailty to encourage independent living, wellbeing and to relieve health and care services budget pressure.

Access the Pin

eCARE is looking to procure the development, testing and implementation of digital tools/services and communication concepts to facilitate the transition to integrated care models across health and social services and country-specific  cross-institutional set-ups, including decentralised procurement environments and collaboration across institutions.

The PIN was published on 05/08/2020, updated on 31/05/2021, and it can be found on TED.
