Question details
Section 4.3.4 Technical and Professional capacity criteria and evidence, Criterion 6: Capacity to obtain access to data and permission of owners and former question with submission date 28/6/2016 with your answer at date 1/7/2016.
To be able to carry out the project for the call EASME/EMFF/2016/005 high resolution data need to be collected from data centers. EU requests the official approval (section 4.3.4 and former question with submission date 28/6/2016 with your answer at date 1/7/2016) from these data holders, in which they declare the willingness to deliver the required data. These data seem difficult to obtain.

The capacity to obtain access to data and permission of owners is considered an essential technical criteria to guarantee the viability of the project. This is the reason why signed authorisations from the data owners are requested. EASME has however, no mechanism to influence the conditions under which data holders licence their products to bidders. It is to be taken into account that in each country there is a wide array of potential data owners whose permission could be searched in the context of this tender (hydrographic agencies, coastguards, local authorities, spatial planners, research bodies, universities, oil companies, private survey companies, etc.).
