The INCONTACT project aims at the development of platform for stimulating closer cooperation among INCO National Contact Points. Within the framework of this closer cooperation, INCO NCPs will work together to effect a substantial improvement in the overall quality of NCP services in the field of International Cooperation. The positive effect of these efforts will not be limited to the NCP network alone. The international research community will ultimately benefit from the heightened level of service offered by the network. Individual researchers will profit from higher quality services and information, and the establishment of a more consistent level of NCP services across Europe will contribute to greater transparency of the research funding for ICP participants. Activities including 3 awareness and training workshops in ICPC countries (Mexico, Russia, South Africa), exchange of experience, good practice, training for inexperienced European NCPs will strengthen the overall capacity of INCO NCPs and provide for more coherence of the support activities offered. In addition an Online Encyclopaedia on International Cooperation compiling all relevant information on International Cooperation activities in FP7 will be developed. The online encyclopaedia will work according to the principles of the Wikipedia online encyclopaedia allowing the interaction and the collection of best practices from all the INCO NCPs.
