Concept & Aim

Topics for the top-down Horizon 2020 programmes are open for at least six months in advance of the deadline. During this time NCPs may receive technical and administrative queries on a particular topic from a potential coordinator. For some of the technical queries communication with the Project Officer is required. Different ways of interactions have been reported to date and they vary from Project Officer to Project Officer and Horizon 2020 programme to programme.

This webinar was a follow-up to our Meet and Exchange Workshop where experienced National Contact Points (NCPs) presented their experiences and identified best practice in Project Officer – NCP interactions in January 2017. The training proposed best practices for NCPs to engage with Project Officers to assist potential Horizon 2020 applicants.

Key content covered:

  • NCP Guiding Principles – Cooperation between NCPs and European Commission Services
  • WHEN do NCPs interact with Project Officers?
  • HOW do NCPs interact with Project Officers?
  • Recommended practices.
