National Contact Points (NCPs) hold a key role in communication with the European Commission concerning executive matters and the scientific community. The quality of proposals submitted, for example, relies partially on an effective NCP network. This project is a set of coherent activities and tasks that will foster further cooperation between Environment NCPs from EU member States and Associated States. The main goal is to improve the services NCPs offer to potential proposers; within this goal, the integration of Environment NCPs from high potential International Cooperation Countries where NCP or similar networks for dissemination of information on FP7 exist will also be supported. The main outcomes will be: a) strengthened cooperation between NCPs across Europe by setting up new and effective means of communication, b) increased quality of services offered by NCPs to proposers with the aim to increase the number and quality of project proposals submitted in response to FP7 calls for proposal and c) integration of other non-EU NCPs into the EU NCP network in order to increase mutually beneficial research and technological development between Europe and International Partners Cooperation Countries.
