TIQUE EU project launches its Open Market Consultation


Published on 05.10.2021

EU project TIQUE (GA 965356) announces the launch of its Open Market Consultation designed to reach potential market players from all parts of the supply chain and invite them to join the planned activities.

Before launching TIQUE’s call for tenders next year, TIQUE is embarking on an Open Market Consultation, starting October 2021. Successful Pre-Commercial Procurement requires involving potential researchers, technology companies and service providers at the earliest possible stage.

TIQUE invites all interested companies to join the OMC activities to learn about the healthcare challenge being faced directly from its three procurers by attending any of the scheduled OMC Events.

The planned activities for the TIQUE OMC are:

  • Four online events: three local events to be held in each of the buyers’ locations and an international event.
  • A market questionnaire will be available on the project website, to gather information from the market on potential solutions to address the TIQUE challenge.
  • A matchmaking tool to assist the development of collaborative partnerships between potential suppliers.

All events will be held online. Registration is open at: https://www.tiquepcp.eu/ca/web/tique/open-market-consultation

Further information will be available on TIQUE’s website: www.tiquepcp.eu.


The three public procurers that form TIQUE buyers’ group are Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (Catalonia), Azienda Sanitaria Locale Avellino (Italy), and Region Västerbotten (Sweden). Together they plan to acquire, through a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) process, innovaTIve and integrated care services that deliver QUick rEsponses to complex patients suffering from advanced heart failure.

As there is no solution currently available to meet the buyers’ needs, the Buyers Group wish to procure the research and development of a technology-enabled all-in-one solution to implement integrated care solutions to Advanced Heart Failure patients, flexible enough to adapt to a variety of European healthcare systems. The solution will include a Virtual Care Centre to facilitate the provision of the right care, at the right moment, in the right place.

TIQUE is directing a total of € 4.40 million, co-funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.

TIQUE is a project funded by the European research and development programme Horizon2020 under GA 965356.
