• The role of NCPs in the policy dialogue: Fostering synergies between Horizon 2020 and the
ESI funds. A case study from Germany

On April 27, participants will attend the information day “Synergies between Research and Innovation Funding: Stairway to Excellence”. On April 28, they will reflect on the information gained and will be presented the three best practices described above.

This is the third mentoring visit organised by the NCP_WIDE.NET project. The aim of the mentoring series is to raise awareness and provide in-depth understanding on horizontal issues, yet important for the NCP job. Topics so far have covered NCP strategy and International Networking.
