Network of National Contact Points (NCPs) in Member States and Associated States

The NCP network is the main provider of advice and individual assistance in all Member States and Associated States. By using this service you can easily find the contact details of the designated National Contact Points for your country.

Since NCPs are appointed for each of the areas of FP6, when seeking support you should contact the NCP relevant to your area of interest.

Find your NCP contact
With the implementation of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the European Commission has established a new network of National Contact Points (NCPs). As under FP6, the network of National Contact Points is the main structure to provide guidance, practical information and assistance on all aspects of participation in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
Find on the FP7 NCP service the contact details of the designated National Contact Points for your country.

NCP services

As the NCPs are national structures, the type and level of services offered may differ from country to country. In general, the following basic services will be available in accordance with the Guiding Principles agreed by all countries:

  • Guidance on choosing thematic priorities and instruments
  • Advice on administrative procedures and contractual issues
  • Training and assistance on proposal writing
  • Distribution of documentation (forms, guidelines, manuals etc.)
  • Assistance in partner search
Specific information about each NCP service is available on its own website.
