MOBILISING AND PROFESSIONALIZING TRANSNATIONALLY THE HEALTH NCP COMMUNITY, SKILLS AND SERVICES

Project description

Transnational cooperation between Health NCPs

National Contact Points (NCPs) have become increasingly important in supporting the establishment of international networks, particularly with the 7th and 8th Framework Programmes. With the launch of Horizon Europe, the EC is once again funding efforts to develop joint actions to support NCP networks. The EU-funded HNN 3.0 project aims to facilitate transnational cooperation between NCPs, building on the previous H2020 network and maintaining its identity within the NCP and applicant communities in the field of health. The project will focus on providing support services to new and Widening country NCPs and lowering barriers for applicants seeking funding opportunities.

Objective

The objective of HNN3.0 is to facilitate the transnational co-operation between National Contact Points (NCPs) for the CL1 in order to achieve a consistent and harmonized level of NCP support. Action will last 7 years to bridge NCPs to next programme. Next to developing support for the facilitation of daily challenges for all NCPs, we put the focus on lowering the entry barriers for new NCPs and offer particular support services for Widening Country NCPs and applicants.
The role of the NCP has become progressively more visible and consistent alongside the 7th and 8th Framework Programmes. Moreover, since more than a decade, the EC is providing funding to develop joint actions that helps NCPs getting organized in international networks, thus contributing to best achieve its R&I and outreach objectives.
NCPs are again an essential component for the brand new programme Horizon Europe?s implementation. They can be envisaged as the ?ambassadors? of the world?s greatest collaborative research programme in the Member States (MS), Associated Countries (AC) and Third Countries (TC). By spreading awareness, giving specialist advice, and providing on-the-ground guidance, they must ensure that the new programme becomes known and readily accessible to all potential applicants, irrespective of sector or discipline. HNN3.0) Health NCP Net has been made to give continuity to the previous network set up under H2020 and to maintain its identity and recognizability within both the NCP community and the wider applicants community, and because CL1 is sometimes referred to only as ?Health?, for shortening and simplification reasons.
Four major target groups are addressed in the 7 years project activities: i.) appointed CL1 NCPs, ii.) their clients/applicants, iii.) other NCPs and important stakeholders, and iv.) the European Commission/HaDEA.
