CTA is a global endeavour expected to cost in the region of €300 million for equipment and an additional 1,500 person-years of effort. The telescopes will be designed and provided by international consortia of scientists as in-kind contributions to the observatory. The supporting buildings and infrastructure will be procured directly by the Observatory itself and managed by the project office.
Industry Procurement Opportunities
CTA’s procurement initiative is to collaborate with industry in an open and unbiased way in order to achieve the best possible results for the execution of its mission.
Industry opportunities will be available over the life of the project with both the CTA Observatory gGmbH and its international consortium design teams. This will include collaborations with organizations that include but are not limited to research and development companies, manufacturers, site services and installation firms, power/data transmission specialists and technology systems vendors.
This page will promote the limited invitations to tender for CTA’s buildings and infrastructure and other central facilities managed by the CTAO gGmbH. Those interested in opportunities with the consortium design teams are encouraged to contact the team leaders found throughout the Project pages of this site or the national/regional representatives listed below directly.
