What is the competition about?

This competition is all about choosing the best plan with an accompanying business case. A plan which is focussed on creating products with the aid of the city’s waste flows.

An expert jury will assess the detailed project plans on a number of criteria: vision and innovation, collaboration, implementation and feasibility, and impact.

The prize is that the winning tenderer will be entitled to be the first to negotiate with the municipality regarding the realisation of his proposal, which, in case of a positive result, will lead to entering into a contract. A total of €1,000.000 of public funds are available from the Almere Urbanisation Fund in 2017, in order to help realise the winning proposal (or proposals). This will involve co-financing with a ratio of 1:3. This means the tenderer will need to assume an own contribution of at least three times the funding requested.

The same amount of €1,000.000 is included in the multiannual programme for the Almere Urbanisation Fund for the years 2018 and 2019 respectively. A definitive decision regarding the use of these funds for cofinancing in 2018 and 2019 will respectively follow in the autumn of 2017 and 2018.
