The UIA Initiative, together with the Permanent Secretariats of the other European programmes based in Lille, Interreg 2 Seas, Interreg Europe and Interreg North West Europe, are launching a joint tender to recruit creative and responsive service providers for the design and production of all their communication supports. Deadline to apply is 28 April 2017 at 12:00 CET.

The objective of this tender is to procure  providers able to do the design and production of a wide range of communication supports, printed or not. The four Secretariats, grouped under the GEIE-GECOTTI, are asking for a wide range of supports to be produced, for instance (non-exhaustive list):

  • electronic or paper support/publications (leaflets, brochures)
  • signages (roll-up stands, umbrella stands, banners…)
  • design for online supports (infographics, web documents…)
  • branded goods, etc

The tasks could cover three different situations according to the orders made by the Secretariat:

  • design, layout and printing
  • printing only
  • design and layout only

The delivery in Lille or in any other location in Europe (for printed supports) should also be included.

The contractors will be able to cover the full chain of production for an order, either internally (in-house capacity) or by sub-contracting external suppliers.
