WYG Bulgaria and WYG PSDB (Poland) are celebrating with news of a recent project win having been awarded a multi-million pound contract working directly with the European Commission in Brussels.
The framework contract will provide a strategic assignment that will help Brussels develop cohesion, structural and investment policies for future programming periods.
Working collaboratively as a large consortium, WYG Bulgaria and WYG PSDB Sp. z.o.o (Poland) will be led by Altus Investment and Assets Management Ltd (Hungary).
Together, their role will be to provide professional expertise to support the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission in the process of future development of EU Cohesion policy and the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESI Funds).
The consortium will assist the European Commission with provision of studies related to the future development of cohesion policy and the European Structural and Investment Funds. Strengthening the discussion around EU cohesion policy is an important aspect of policy development. In this respect, further work is needed to examine different issues within the context of the future development of cohesion policy.
The multidisciplinary nature of the cohesion policy and the ESI Funds will mean that studies deal with issues outside the core focus of cohesion policy, focusing on more general future challenges or EU political priorities.
The fields of studies covered may include: financial instruments, economic growth, competitiveness, globalisation, urban–rural relationship, local development, research and innovation, digital growth, transport, sustainable energy, environmental issues, climate change, resource efficiency, sustainable exploitation of marine resources, demography, risk prevention and management, education, knowledge society, social systems and labour markets, territorial cooperation, institutions and governance.
With a three year duration, the overall framework contract value is approx EUR 4 million.
Tomasz Klimczak, President of the Management Board, WYG PSDB Sp. z o.o, Poland said: ‘We are extremely pleased to have secured this contract and shows how two business units of WYG group can work together on the EU global market and achieve success on the highest possible European level.’
