What is the NCP network?
NCPs are national structures established and financed by
governments of the 25 EU member states and the states associated
to the framework programme. NCPs give personalised support
on the spot and in proposers own languages.
The NCP systems in the different countries show a wide variety
of architectures, from highly centralised to decentralised
networks, and a number of very different actors, from ministries
to universities, research centres and special agencies to
private consulting companies. This reflects the different
national traditions, working methodologies, research landscapes
and funding schemes.
