Since 2006, the F.R.S.-FNRS has hosted the National Contact Point (NCP) responsible for supporting participation to the European framework programmes for research and innovation.
It is aimed at higher education actors in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation: universities, university hospitals, university colleges and arts colleges.
The objectives of the NCP-FNRS are as follows:
- to notify researchers of Horizon Europe funding opportunities;
- to inform stakeholders;
- to identify and enable possibilities for participation;
- to assist stakeholders in introducing projects.
In practical terms, the work revolves around organising information sessions and providing information through various means (the website, the helpdesk etc).
