Lot 2
The case study is requiring to assess the different Copernicus user uptake communication activities (p. 69), providing a "quantitative estimate of the economic benefits of these initiatives (e.g. added-value, number of company created, knowledge spillovers …) as well as their environmental and societal benefits (e.g. increased used of Copernicus data leading to better air quality, environment protection, climate change mitigation or civil security…). For the measurement of socio-economic impacts, the tenderer can make use of the existing literature (in particular the Copernicus ex-ante Benefit Assessment Study 2017, which quantifies the benefits of Copernicus)". Does this mean the EC is expecting us to remodel all the benefits assessed last year in the Copernicus Ex Ante study using the same approach (impact pathway) but apply to the initiative under scrutiny? Or do you want us to link the initiatives to those benefits in order to assess the paternity of these initiatives (without entirely remodeling all impact pathway)?

The tenderer states that “The evaluation shall in particular include: (…) A quantitative estimate of the economic benefits of these initiatives (e.g. added-value, number of company created, knowledge spillovers …) as well as their environmental and societal benefits (e.g. increased used of Copernicus data leading to better air quality, environment protection, climate change mitigation or civil security…). For the measurement of socio-economic impacts, the tenderer can make use of the existing literature (in particular the Copernicus ex-ante Benefit Assessment Study 2017, which quantifies the benefits of Copernicus). “ The extent to which the methodology should rely on existing literature, in order to achieve the objectives of the case study, is left to the tenderer’s appreciation.
