Funding

Showing tenders for Advanced Technology

Contracts are gained via Invitation To Tender (ITT), issued by TIA. Refer to the link "Business with ARTES" to find out more about the ITT process. Click on the links below to find out which ITTs are currently open within ARTES AT. Intended ITTs are planned to be issued in the near future. ITTs classified as Priority 2 activities will only be initiated on the explicit request of at least one delegation.

If you would like to respond to a currently open ITT you will first have to register on esa-star as a potential bidder. Please register your interest in a currently open or planned ITT using the "Advanced Technology Expression of Interest" form available for download here.

A Summary Table for all planned ARTES AT workplan activities is available here for download to registered users residing within participating Member States.

An overview of the latest ARTES AT Workplans is available here.

This page displays the ARTES Invitation To Tenders (ITTs) which are published on EMITS. Use the selection criteria on the left to refine your search.

Funding of the individual Prime or subcontractors, for ARTES Core Competitiveness and ARTES Applications activities, is subject to authorisation of the required ARTES budget by the related National Delegations. Therefore, bidding teams are requested to inform their National Delegation(s) of their intention to participate in funded activities already before submitting a proposal.
