Research and development activities in the field of agricultural machinery and power transmission systems for tractors and off-highway vehicles as well as the other activities comprised in the proposed project are not listed in any of the annexes of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2014/52/EU amending the Directive 2011/92/ EU. The financed activities will be carried out in already- authorized existing facilities, that will not change their scope due to the project, thus not requiring any additional environmental permits.
The promoter has been assessed by EIB as being a private company not operating in the utilities sector and not having a status of a contracting entity, thus not being subject to EU rules on public procurement.
