About Europe - NCP (National Contact Point)
"NCP is a government-driven programme to help Korean researchers' access to EU research funding programme such as previously FP7, Horizon2020 and currently Horizon Europe, to provide the latest news and information related to R&I and relevant policy in the EU and to play a bridging role in building close networks between European and Korean researchers. NCP are experts in their relevant field."
NCPs in KERC
With KERC serving as a platform to promote integrated Korea-EU R&D cooperation, KERC’s NCPs provide information on EU R&D, EU policy trends, as well as expert advice in their field.
Primary Role of NCPs
NCPs provide highly professional services by spreading awareness, giving specialist advice, and providing on-the-ground guidance, with the view to ensuring that the new programme becomes known and readily accessible to all potential applicants.
The Republic of Korea, as a third country under Horizon Europe, supports not only Korean researchers, institutions, and enterprises who seek guidance for participation in the EU Horizon projects but also European counterparts interested in R&D collaboration with Korea.
