Trans-national co-operation among NCPs for International Cooperation

Objective

INCONTACT-one world aims at stimulating closer cooperation among INCO NCPs. Within the framework of this closer cooperation, INCO NCPs/NIPs 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 but the international research community will ultimately benefit from the heightened level of service offered by the network. In this direction INCONTACT-one world is suggesting practical tools to achieve objectives: - Annual INCO NCP conferences giving the opportunity for personal communication, NCP training, discussion of global science policy issues, and presentation of research capacities from ICPC countries. -INCO-Wiki, the Online Encyclopaedia on International Cooperation will move to a step further offering more complete practical information to the INCO NCPs/NIPs, aiming to become a live tool for the transfer of knowledge and best practices on International Cooperation. It will also act as a tool for publishing information and as a discussion platform. -Special trainings for the professional development of the NCPs will be offered. -A two-way communication channel with all the thematic NCPs will be set for facilitating the information flow on specific aspects of International Cooperation. -Free communication and networking tools will be studied and suggested for use. -A global dialogue on Science policy will be initiated aiming to provide sound proposals to the EC. -Local FP7 information events will be organised around the globe aiming to increase awareness on FP opportunities. -An NCP support mechanism will be established to provide initial support to newly assigned INCO NCPs. It is underlined that INCONTACT-one world, above everything else, is aiming to serve all the INCO NCPs and all are encouraged to participate in the project activities, meetings and discussions
