Empowering the network of National Contact Points is essential for maintaining a high standard of support for researchers
A National Contact Point (NCP) is an expert in a specific area in the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. NCPs assist researchers with the identification of opportunities and preparation of proposals for funding.
In order to ensure a high level of expertise among the NCPs, the European Commission (EC) finances so-called ‘NCP projects’. In this way, NCPs can strengthen their competence through tailored activities and are in contact with all of the NCPs in Europe and beyond.
Net4Mobility+ is an example of an NCP project financed by the EC. This project was established with the aim to empower the network of NCPs for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). It also provides support to the scientific community.
Thanks to the Net4Mobility+ project, MSCA NCPs are well networked and can share their knowledge on different platforms (website, FAQ blog, webinars, social media, handbooks, etc.), which ultimately also benefits researchers applying for MSCA funding.
So if you are an MSCA applicant, it is worth having a look at the Net4Mobility+ website!
New Success Story – ERC
European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grants support the innovative projects of highly promising early-career researchers. Prof. Piotr Didyk from the University of Lugano received an ERC grant for his 5-year project “project “PERDY”.
