Overview

The South African Department of Science and Innovation has appointed National Contact Points (NCPs) to provide guidance and assistance to South African participants in the European Union’s new Framework Programme Horizon 2020. The South African NCP Network consists of experts appointed because of their knowledge and experience of participation in European research programmes, as well as their understanding of South Africa’s research strengths in the thematic areas they are responsible for.
