The International Cooperation Directorate of DG Research and Innovation of the European Commission and the INCONTACT 2020 project which promotes the capacity building, coordination and networking of all National Contact Points for International Cooperation, organised on the 26th of November, 2014 the International NCP Workshop - Promoting the International Dimension of Horizon 2020.
The Workshop goal was to highlight the global dimension of Horizon 2020 and to facilitate the exchange of views for the enhancement of international research cooperation. The Workshop brought together 75 International NCPs and INCO Experts from around the globe involved in international cooperation activities and European Commission officials to discuss ways to improve international participation in the new Framework Programme.
European Commission officials presented to the participants the role and strategy for international cooperation within Horizon 2020, the role of NCPs and communication activities and strategy to promote the new Programme. International NCPs gave short talks about activities in their country to raise awareness of Horizon 2020, problems and bottlenecks concerning participation in Horizon 2020 and suggestions for improving cooperation in the new Framework Programme. In the final session an open discussion took place focusing on the necessity of international cooperation in Horizon 2020, how international cooperation is shaping up in the new framework programme, the difficulties and problems currently faced in international cooperation, and the necessary steps and corrective strategies for improving international participation in Horizon 2020.
