We provide information, guidance and technical assistance on European funds for health research projects. Our clients are researchers willing to participate and in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Find here a summary about our network.
The project started in May 2008 and ended in April 2013, it was co-financed by the European Commission under FP7 and coordinated by Instituto de Saud Carlos III.
Health NCPs share information and good practices in the Health NCP Handbook.
This handbook is a comprehensive collection of practical guidelines on how to perform the main duties of a Health NCP efficiently. It describes a number of good practices from more experienced Health NCPs, and aims to achieve a transfer of knowledge between NCPs, thus providing a more suitable service to researchers worlwide. Serving NCPs from new member states and third countries is a priority of HEALTH-NCP-NET, so especial enphasis has been given to aspects of particular pertinence to them.
