Improving the services of the NMP NCP Network through Transnational Activities 4

Project description

Enhancing support for H2020 applicants

The NMP TeAm 4 project will address a pressing issue within the Industrial Leadership part of Horizon 2020. The goal of this EU-funded project is to alleviate the challenges faced by applicants seeking funding by facilitating transnational cooperation between National Contact Points (NCPs). By building on the success of previous EU projects (NMP TeAm 1, 2 and 3), the project aims to raise the standard of support provided by NMP NCPs. Overall, it will establish mechanisms for capacity building, deliver training events and virtual sessions, improve the Partner Search Facility, organise brokerage events, and enhance outreach efforts. Its mission is to simplify access, lower barriers, and elevate the quality of proposals in order to support programme applicants.


NMP TeAm 4 is a proposal for a 27 months continuation of the successful EU projects NMP TeAm 1,2&3. It aims to facilitate transnational cooperation between NCPs within the Industrial leadership Part with a view to identifying and sharing good practices and raising the general standard of support by the NMP NCPs to programme applicants as described in the work programme. NMP TeAm 4 will achieve a consistent, improved and more professional NCP service across Europe, thereby helping simplify access to H2020 calls, lowering the entry barriers for newcomers and raising the average quality of proposals.
NNP TeAm 4:
- Will create the mechanisms and tools for capacity building of NCPs' skills that will ensure the NCP Network's high and consistent level of services to clients. These will include 4 training events, 4 virtual trainings for less experienced NCPs, 4 twinning schemes and self -assessment through benchmarking.
- Will provide the necessary tools to all NMP NCPs so that they can assist their clients to increase their success rate in H2020 and lower the barriers for participation for new applicants. These will include the improvement of the Partner Search Facility of NMP TeAm 1,2&3, organisation of 4 brokerage events at large EU presidency conferences and 8 virtual training seminars for NCPs, stakeholders and clients on H2020.
- Will improve the outreach of the NMP NCP Network and maximise the impact of its activities, services and results to a wide audience of clients and stakeholders. This will be achieved through the continuation of the NMP TeAm website, continuous dissemination of information through social media and participation of NCPs at large NMP related events to provides assistance and services on the spot. NMP TeAm 4 will also maintain and create new links with stakeholders at European and regional level like the Enterprise Europe Network, European Technology Platforms, other NCP Networks and key regional stakeholders to reach as many clients as possible.
