NCPS NETwork for the GREEN transition in climate, energy and mobility

Project description

EU cluster on climate, energy and mobility receives a boost

The Horizon Europe framework programme Cluster 5 targets a climate-neutral Europe by 2050. The goal is to speed up green and digital transitions and associated transformations of the economy, industry and society. The cluster aims to fight climate change by better understanding its causes, evolution, risks, impacts and opportunities. The role of National Contact Points is crucial to provide support and guidance to the Cluster 5 research and innovation community and for increasing the participation level in the programme. The EU-funded GREENET project will improve the competence level and the suite of tools of the cluster’s National Contact Points, organise targeted events and offer high-quality services for applicants and stakeholders.

Objective

The overall aim of GREENET is to improve the professionalisation and skills of the Cluster 5 (CL5) National Contact Points (NCPs) across Europe, simplifying applicants’ access to Horizon Europe (HE) calls and raising the average quality of submitted proposals.
Starting from the assumption that the NCP role is crucial in order to raise the participation in HE in terms of both quality and quantity, the GREENET overall concept is that the CL5 NCP community requires knowledge, skills, competences and a proven comprehensive suite of tools to convey a message in a multicultural and multi-disciplinary environment such as CL5 and to effectively support its broad based constituency. Therefore, the project is based on three pillars: (i) NCPs capacity building and competence development, (ii) development of targeted and high quality services (events and tools) for CL5 applicants and stakeholders , (iii) CL5 community building and general mainstreaming of CL5 NCPs in Horizon Europe.
