The INCONTACT2020 project, funded by the European Commission (DG Research and Innovation) under Capacities – INCO Programme of FP7, has supported Horizon 2020 awareness activities around the world by providing training and tools for capacity building and directly supporting the work of NCPs in third countries. The event is the third one planned in the frame of the Capacity Building programme set by MedSpring on the new EU Research Framework programme Horizon2020 and the second one planned within the series of regional workshops and Info days organized by the INCONTACT2020 project for Med researchers and NCPS. It is scheduled to be held from 28 to 30 October, in Cairo, Egypt.
The workshop draws on the training needs analysis, which was previously carried out by MedSpring and INCONTACT2020 and - most important - on inputs and suggestions provided by Mediterranean National Contact and Focal Points participating in the last MED SPRING training events held respectively in Amman - Jordan, in December 2013 and in Marrakesh - Morocco, in June 2014, in synergy with INCONTACT2020. Following the success of the workshop in Morocco, the workshop will bring NCPs and administrators together in order to increase the awareness of their role and their interdependencies in securing reliable project participation and management.
