NCP_WIDERA.NET supports the capacity and effectiveness of the WIDERA National Contact Points in low performing Member States (MS) and Associated Countries (AC) and fills knowledge gaps to improve access to funding opportunities under the Framework Programmes.

The project aims to support international networking and coordination, and to improve the quality of proposals through better access to services provided by the NCPs during the application process, in particular with regard to Widening Participation and Strengthening the European Research Area, as well as Pillar II actions.

NCP_WIDERA.NET identifies and shares good practices within the NCP community and raises the standard of support provided by NCPs to applicants. It also enables the transnational network of NCPs to better address cross-cutting objectives such as gender equality and open science.
