In preparation for the BroadGNSS PCP request for tender, an Open Market Consultation (OMC) with potential tenderers and end-users will be held to hear the views of the market about our scope.
The purpose of the OMC is to canvass wide stakeholder opinion on the suitability of the BroadGNSS PCP. The OMC will be an essential part of the preparation to find solutions to our BroadGNSS Challenge. With the market consultation, the consortium will get an insight into the market; the state of the art and future developments in order to prepare an adequate procurement with the right and feasible scope.
In order to gain this knowledge, companies in the EU will be invited to fill in an online questionnaire on the BroadGNSS PCP Challenge. The questionnaire will be published on the website from 2 June 2021 and will close at the end of June 2021.
On 2 June 2021, an OMC Webinar will be held to present the BroadGNSS PCP Challenge and the PCP process. Various material regarding this webinar (agenda, meeting recording, transcript of the Q&A) will be made publicly available on this page.
On 14 October 2021, a Partnering Event will be held to assist companies search for a consortium. Details about the location and registration will be on the project website 3 weeks beforehand. Depending on the situation at the time, the event will take place in Paris, or online).

It will allow contributors to give feedback on what technologies should be included in BroadGNSS, where they see the biggest technical challenges and what more information should be shared in order to make scope of the challenge clearer. The results of the consultations will be fully documented and taken into account in order to detail the tender specifications.
