Partner Search Facilities
CORDIS has a number of services and information sources which may be useful in partner search for participation in IST projects, as well as a list of organisations which have already expressed an interest in participating in the calls (call for Expression of Interest).
National Contact Points
The IST Priority supports a network of National Contact Points (NCPs), which can be helpful to organisations from their country both for general advice (particularly on preparing proposals) and for finding partners from other countries. Organisations should contact the NCP of their own country for further information.
The IDEALIST-project helps potential proposers and newcomers to the IST Priority to find the right partners across international boundaries. It comprises a network of organisations in each Member and Associated State, coordinated by the DLR Germany. IDEALIST offers:
- a partner brokerage service, targeted on particular calls and Action Lines, that pools the local knowledge of partners from 33 countries
- international partner brokerage events
- general support for potential proposers
- special workshops and seminars
The IDEALIST partners, many of whom are also official National Contact Points for the IST Priority, or who work in close cooperation with NCPs, represent all EU Member States and Associated States.
