Evaluation of the European Technology Platforms (ETPs). Request for Services in the context of the DG BUDG Framework Service Contracts on Evaluation and Evaluation-related Services. Ref. Nr.: BUDG06/PO/01/Lot 3.Funded under: FP7
European Technology Platforms (ETPs) were first introduced in the EC Communication "Industrial Policy in an enlarged Europe" in December 2002. The ambition was to bring together R&D-relevant stakeholders with various backgrounds (e.g. regulatory bodies at various geo-political levels, industry, public authorities, research institutes and the academic community, the financial world and civil society) who would develop a long-term R&D strategy in areas of interest to Europe. The platforms also had a mandate in helping to further mobilize private and public R&D investments (cf. Barcelona target of 3% GERD by 2010). The set up of an ETP follows a bottom-up approach in which the stakeholders take the initiative and where the European Commission evaluates and guides the process.
