Network of National Contact Point

11 Regional Contact Points function within a network structure, which is coordinated by the National Contact Point for Research Programmes of the EU.

The Network’s team consists of many of highly experienced experts from major academic centers in Poland.

Together they offer a wide array of services, which includes support for potential beneficiaries, in the form of advisory and training services, assistance for individual scientists, institutions, enterprises and any other entities interested in participating in the Framework Programmes.
