On 29 July 1995, the European Commission, DGs XII, XIII and XXII, and the Joint Research Centre, published an invitation to tender for the recruitment of service companies to carry out information and communication activities in the fields of technological research and development, education, training and youth (OJ No S 143 of 29.7.1995 and OJ No C 195 of 29.7.1995). A total of five tenders were received in answer to this call. The tenderers were: - Anglia Corporate Marketing Ltd.; - Commercial Presentations Ltd. - The CP Group; - Pouwer & Stevers BV; - TechnoPlanning - WIP & ETA; - Touchstone Exhibitions and Conference Ltd. The contract has, however, not been awarded owing to the wide divergence of approaches proposed which made it impossible for the tenders to be compared. The Commission is, therefore, intending to publish a new contract notice relating to this service.
