Short description of the contract or purchase(s):  
The purpose of this contract is to assist the European Environment Agency (EEA) in statistical and probabilistic issues related to spatial integration supporting environmental assessment.
Developments in EEA tasks necessitate a) increasingly frequent use of statistical and probabilistic tools, especially in integration of spatial data, and b) re-sampling of existing heterogeneous data sets, especially in the accounting of ecosystems and habitats.
The expertise currently available to the EEA, either through core staff or the European Topic Centres (ETCs), covers traditional application of statistics. However, this expertise is not sufficient to address the specific, complex and non-standard questions raised by spatial integration.
The aim of the framework contract is to reinforce the EEA by providing specialised expertise in the following areas:
— in close cooperation with EEA project managers, identify and define relevant questions,
— suggest and rationalise sound statistical/probabilistic solutions to the defined question,
— suggest ways of implementing solutions, including proxy solutions, if the scientifically-backed solution cannot be implemented in a simple, practical or economical way,
— review and comment on topical solutions and reports.
