The European Commission has published a call for proposals under the 2011 work programme 'People' of the Seventh EC Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration Activities.
This initiative aims to reinforce the network of National Contact Points (NCP) for the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) under the 'People' theme, by promoting trans-national co-operation. The action will focus on identifying and sharing good practice, with a particular emphasis on promoting the COFUND action and the international dimension of all relevant Marie Curie Actions. This may entail various mechanisms such as benchmarking, joint workshops and training etc.
An aim of this call is to build an improved NCP service across Europe, therefore helping simplify access to FP7 'People' calls. It also seeks to lower the entry barriers for newcomers, raise the average quality of submitted proposals and provide a more consistent level of NCP support services across Europe.
Remarks: Before contacting the Commission, proposers are strongly advised to consult the original call text.
