Information event - 19th December, London

In addition, DG Translation is organising an information event at Europe House on Tuesday 19 December, where it will explain the new way of working with external partners which is outlined in the calls, and attempt to answer questions from potential tenderers. This event is intended only for those individuals or representatives of organisations that are likely to be eligible to submit tenders. The venue capacity is limited and the event is free of charge, so we want to ensure as far as possible that places are not taken by people unlikely to be able to submit tenders. Registration is essential, at this link:

Any individual or organisation can submit a tender in response to the call whether or not they attend the event, of course.
