NCP Flanders is your contactpoint for all your questions regarding the implementation of the Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programme. But there are also other services which give specific support and advice about the Framework programme.
National Contact Point Flanders (NCP Flanders) fulfils its services towards stakeholders located in Flanders.
Since in Belgium NCP services are regionalised, there are 4 other NCP organisations responsible for other stakeholder groups:
- NCP Brussels for enterprises and international organisations located in Brussels
- NCP FNRS for universities of the French speaking community
- NCP Federal, for the federal institutes
- NCP Wallonie for the enterprises of the Walloon region.

If you are a staff member of a university, university college or research organisation… Most of these organisations located in Flanders, have installed a European Funding Support Office which is your first contact point.
The various work programmes are drafted by sixteen Programme Committees consisting of delegates of the participating countries in Horizon 2020.
Representatives from EWI (Department of Economy, Science and Innovation) inform on the drafting process and collect input from stakeholders located in Flanders to bring it on the Belgian and European level, which results in a concrete work programme. This input can typically consist of suggestions for new topics, requests for adaptations on scale, content of proposed projects or feedback on former participants.
You can contact the Horizon 2020 programme committee delegate from Flanders of the programme of your interest.
As soon as the committees for Horizon EU will be composed, we'll add the information.
