CARE4BIO is a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe programme, and that will run up until the end of the framework programme itself. Its purpose is to align and enhance the services that Cluster 6 (Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment) National Contact Points (NCPs) provide to potential beneficiaries of European funding in those areas across Europe and worldwide.
Services for NCPs
CARE4BIO will support Cluster 6 NCPs by providing a wide range of tools. Among these, CARE4BIO will produce material dedicated to newcomer and experienced NCPs including guides for beginners, online experience exchange events that will be organized to help NCPs to learn from each other, and a full NCP training curriculum that will be developped and improved all along the lifetime of the project.
Services for applicants
CARE4BIO will also support Cluster 6 applicants directly in order to increase the participation. This support will take the form of yearly brokerage events, training dedicated to applicants and awareness raising events. Additionally to that, CARE4BIO will of course share all relevant information regarding Cluster 6, including news and program updates, on its website and social media.
Cooperation with relevant stakeholders
Cooperation is one of CARE4BIO’s guiding principles, so the project team will be in touch with all relevant stakeholders related to Cluster 6, such as policy makers, and other similar networks, in order to provide quality content and feedback.
