What is a National Contact Point (NCP)?

The network of National Contact Points (NCPs) is the main structure to provide guidance, practical information and assistance on all aspects of participation in Horizon 2020. NCPs are also established in many non-EU and non-associated countries ("third countries"). The mission of National contact Points is to spread awareness, give specialist advice and provide on-the-ground guidance to ensure that the new programme becomes known and readily accessible to all potential applicants, irrespective of sector or discipline.
