Polish National Contact Point for Research Programmes of the EU

Institute of Fundamental Technological Research, Polish Academy of Sciences

The Polish National Contact Point (NCP) supports Polish scientists, research and scientific institutions, SMEs and other organisations interested in participating in the EU research programme HORIZON 2020. The mission of the NCP is comprehensive support at each stage of the participation: beginning with information on open calls, participation rules, through creating a project consortium and consulting project proposals to project realisation and reporting. To this end, NCP provides individual project advice, consultancy, mentoring, organises workshops, training seminars, information days and conferences.

The NCP together with 11 Regional Contact Points located in the biggest academic centres in Poland carry out the tasks, assigned by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, as the NCP’s Network.

The Network also actively supports international mobility of researchers, hosting EURAXESS Service Centres, which are a part of the European Euraxess network.

The Foundation and the NCP Poland, based on a signed agreement, have taken up various activities aimed at encouraging Polish scientists and research institutions to participate in HORIZON 2020, focusing especially on boosting research internationalisation and international mobility of researchers.
