Guidelines for development partnerships
Partners willing to contribute to the Princess Elisabeth development with field proven products or services should describe their expected features and benefits in the conditions of the Antarctic.
The first decision criteria are linked to the value added to the performance of the station’s systems. Engineers specialized in their respective fields for the station will review the proposals technically. Once the technical points are validated, a sponsoring package is discussed. There are no preset packages as technologies are quite diverse, as well as companies’ wishes and expectations on return. A tailor made agreement is negotiated between the parties, based on the financial values, with a minimum threshold and keeping consistency across the different partners.
