National Contact Points (NCPs)

National Contact Points are nominated by their national authorities to provide support and assistance to anyone interested in participating in Horizon 2020, the EU's Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. NCPs are listed below by country.

SiS.net is the network of National Contact Points (NCPs) for the Science with and for Society programme of Horizon 2020. The network unites more than 70 representatives from all EU member states, associated countries and a number of non-European countries.

  • NCPs can help applicants through the rules and regulations of the programme and give advice on administrative procedures;
