Here is an e-mail from FRONTEX that we did not receive:
We would like to inform you that Frontex R&D Unit has issued a tender call for the conduct of two studies as follows:
1. Ethics of Border Security
2. Forward Study on European Border Checks
The deadline for proposals is 21 May 2010 and the studies should be completed within 6 months, in close consultation with us.
As companies/institutions/individuals with whom we have had fruitful contact in the past, we would like to invite you to consider making a proposal for one or both studies should the subject be within your area of expertise, or to forward this information to others who you believe can offer the skills we are looking for.
Full details on the tender can be found at: http://www.frontex.europa.eu/procurement/calls_for_tenders_above_60000/
Please note that the “above €60,000” figure mentioned refers to both studies TOGETHER, though each lot can be bid on separately.
