A system of National Contact Points has been established for the Specific Programmes of the Framework Programme, i.e. Horizon 2020 in each of the Member States and Associated States with the aim of providing assitance and guidance on different EU programmes and related issues. NCPs are persons officially nominated by the national authorities to provide tailored information in national language(s). The NCP systems in the different countries show a wide variety of architectures and a number of very different actors.

NCPs are established in all Danube Region countries (including the non-EU Member States). They are the first to contact if you have any questions about specific EU research programmes.
