NCP NOMINATION –according to the national prioritiesas well as

thematic and horizontal priorities of the FP

CENTRALIZED NCP SYSTEM COMPOSED MAINLY BY THE PEOPLE

FROM DIFFERENT SECTORS AT THE MINISTRY (Basic Research,

Technological Development, Transfer of Technologies and Innovation

System, International Science and Technological Cooperation, Human

Resources Development in Science, Nuclear Safety)


Functions of ncp system
FUNCTIONS OF NCP SYSTEM

ACCORDING TO THE BASIC PRINCIPLES FOR THE NCP

CONCEPT IN FP7

National government (Ministry od Science and Technological Development) is responsible for NCP system creating, financing, nominating,supervising and monitoring,

Commission services are providing the necessary information and training andacting as moderator for the trans-national networking,

Liaison between our NCP system and other NCP systems is well established by trans-national activities (networking, benchmarking, partner search, staff exchangeschemes etc.)

Specifictrans-national activities for NCP performance quality assessment and the developmentof international best practice is receiveing financial support from the Commission


Ncps activities on national level
NCPs activities on national level

Pupin, Institute of Meat Hygiene and Technology, Institute of Molecular Genetics and Genetic Engineering, Institute for Physics)

    • (iii) 9 workshops ‘How to write an FP7 proposal’ (5 in Belgrade, 2 in Novi Sad, 1 in Kragujevac and 1 in Niš) mainly dedicated to RegPot1 call for 2009

Strenght and weakness
STRENGHT AND WEAKNESS

  • STRENGHT

  • National Level

  • Structure which covers national prioritiesand thematic and horizontal priorities of the FP,

  • Experience in FP programmes

  • For some immportant thematic areas we have nominated more than one NCP per thematic area,

  • NCP network and contacts between NCPs is well established

  • Close cooperation with researchers

  • International level

    Co-operation and communication development between NCP system on regional (WBCs) and EU level

  • Skills developed by active participation to the international events

    related to FP 7: conference, seminars, workshops,

  • and by participation in the relevant NCP Networks as well as

    ERA.Net projects


Strenght and weakness1
STRENGHT AND WEAKNESS

WEAKNESS

Lack of communication with the private (SME) Sector (particularly in some previous periods)

One NCP covers several priority areas

Only thematic data basis, no common one

In some cases there is no strong link between NCPs and PC members (experts)

System of monitoring and evaluation should be further improved


R ecomendation potential improvement
RECOMENDATION- potential improvement

- Communication between NCP system and SMEs need to be improved

- Communication and information-flow between all key players related to

FP7/CIP/IPA and NCP services should be improved: different ministries,

Programme Committee (PC) Members, SMEs, NCPs of other countries,

and the EC

- The quality of NCP system should be better monitored and evaluated.

- Implement independent mechanism to insure that PCMs as well as NCPs

fulfill their job

- NCPs should be more visible for RTD groups on national and international

level

- More training on important F7 issues (financial and legal regulation and

how to write a good proposal).
