National Contact Points (NCPs), are support structures that have become an essential component in the implementation of successive European Framework Programmes. They provide information and on-the-ground advice to potential applicants and beneficiaries, through the project life cycle, in their own language and national context, in a manner that would be impossible for the Commission and its Agencies acting alone.
Ideal-ist is an international ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) National Contact Point (NCP) network, supporting research and innovation activities for the EU Framework Programmes. The network includes more than 65 partners from Member States, Associated Countries, Eastern European Partner Countries (EEPC), Mediterranean Partner Countries (MPC), and other countries throughout the world.
