I am working on an innovative light rail concept that has the potential of a radically improved cost-benefit ratio against conventional tram or metro systems, but it requires a vehicle design, differing significantly from common trams (for more details see http://buschbacher.at/LCRTen.html). Seeking for a path towards further development and realisation of my idea, I am wondering, which players should have most interest to be involved: First I thought about a cooperation with a vehic...

Or when others are not aware that their activity – at least some aspects of it – is actually part of circular economy.
Circular economy is a key concept, but it is also very complex. Through its activities ACR+ has been in touc...

Met die variant heb ik geen ervaring, wel loop ik tegen hetzelfde aan met de vooraankondigingen die ik recent geplaatst heb.
Mijn advies is om een klacht bij Tenderned in te dienen want bij vooraankondigingen en aankondigingen boven de 750k en inkooponderwerp vallend onder bijlage 14, is Tenderned niet goed ingericht. Bij het opstarten van aanbestedingen zou je meerdere keuzes in het begin van het aanmaken moeten hebben. bijvb. vooraankondiging of aankondiging, boven de dremp...
just a heads-up that the new GPP criteria are now available in 23 languages, to be found here:
The Swedish and German governments established a joint partnership to create electrified roads for hybrid trucks. As a result of an extensive public and private cooperation the world first e-motorway has been constructed in the Swedish Region Gävleborg. Since last year the German state Schleswig-Holstein is also testing the new technology on a 6km long part of the A1 motorway (and more states about to follow the practice).
If you want to learn more about the story and the technology see:

Or are you looking at bidding in a procurement process?
