Procurement at European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)
EMBL’s Barcelona site is continuing to expand in size, with new research groups planned and an extension to the Mesoscopic Imaging Facility. At EMBL Hamburg and EMBL-EBI in Hinxton reorganization and/or expansion of the host campuses are planned or underway. Refurbishment of the EMBL sites at Grenoble and Rome is also at discussion phase.
In the coming five years EMBL will invest in light and electron microcopy, computing infrastructure for IT Services (compute, storage, connectivity, data security), beamline detectors and instrumentation.
One of EMBL’s key projects is the 48 million EUR spend for the construction (incl. equipment and infrastructure) of a unique microscopy facility for the life sciences in Heidelberg. The center, set to open in 2021, will welcome visiting scientists from all over the world as well as industry partners. It will make new imaging technologies at EMBL available to foster a better understanding of the molecular basis of life and disease.he firm whose bid complies with the country of origin requirements, the stated technical, financial and delivery requirements, and which offers the lowest price. However, for requirements exceeding 100’000 CHF, an alignment rule may apply which provides an advantage to a bidder if at least 60% of its supplies originate from poorly balanced Member States.
