"Network of National Contact Points for Cluster 2 ""Culture, Creativity and Inclusive society"" and ""SSH Integration"""

Project description

Building better National Contact Points for researchers

National Contact Points (NCPs) are officially appointed to advise researchers and other relevant, eligible stakeholders in their efforts to secure EU funding. In this context, the EU-funded Net4SocietyHE project is the transnational network for Horizon Europe’s Cluster 2: Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society (CL2) NCPs. Building on past initiatives, the project will further develop services created by its predecessors to support today’s NCPs. To that end, it will design activities to ensure all CL2 NCPs have the relevant knowledge and skills required to offer a consistently high degree of professional, high-quality, tailor-made services to potential programme applicants.

Objective

"National Contact Points (NCPs) are officially appointed to advise researchers and other relevant, eligible stakeholders in their efforts to secure EU funding. In this context, the EU-funded Net4SocietyHE project is the transnational network for Horizon Europe’s Cluster 2: Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society (CL2) NCPs. Building on past initiatives, the project will further develop services created by its predecessors to support today’s NCPs. To that end, it will design activities to ensure all CL2 NCPs have the relevant knowledge and skills required to offer a consistently high degree of professional, high-quality, tailor-made services to potential programme applicants.
""Net4SocietyHE” (N4SHE) is the transnational network for Cluster 2 ""Culture, Creativity and Inclusive Society"" (CL2) National Contact Points (NCPs) in Horizon Europe. NCPs are officially designated to advise researchers and other relevant, eligible stakeholders in their efforts to secure EU funding. N4SHE builds on Net4Society, the network for Societal Challenge 6 NCPs in H2020, and NCPs for Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities in FP7, and will further develop services and tools created by its predecessor to help NCPs to succeed in their work. Through its planned activities, N4SHE will ensure that all CL2 NCPs have the relevant knowledge and skills necessary to adequately and competently offer a consistently high-degree of professional, high-quality, tailor-made services to potential programme applicants. All nominated CL2 NCPs (including non-beneficiaries) will have access to information and capacity-building tools and events organised by the project, such as CL2 NCP info sessions, trainings, and network meetings. N4SHE will support prospective applicants in CL2, with a special focus on new stakeholders (e.g. CSOs, CCIs, GLAMs [galleries, libraries, archives, and museums]) and researchers from countries with lower-than-average results and participation in H2020. The project will facilitate multi-actor/interdisciplinary/international consortia-building through organisation of brokerages, bilateral meetings of project initiators and researchers from Widening countries, via use of a partner search platform tool. N4SHE will also organise info days and proposal check events to encourage participation and development of successful proposals. To support SSH Integration across Horizon Europe, N4SHE will organise SSH-themed brokerages, special trainings on the topic for NCPs, and publish an ""SSH Opportunities"" document, highlighting SSH research funding chances beyond flagged topics within Horizon Europe, including in missions and partnerships, and separately publicise opportunities in other EU Programmes, in addition to other actions."
