    Environmental aspects

    The activities are expected to be carried out in existing R&D centres that will not change their scope due to the project, and is not subject to Directive 2011/92/EU; an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is therefore not needed. However the Bank's services will further assess all the environmental details during the due diligence.


    Procurement is expected to be in line with EIB guidelines for private sector projects. The Bank's services will verify details during the project's due diligence.
