The NMP TeAm 2 project aims at assisting the NMP NCP Network to provide good quality and high standard services to the proposers and therefore helping simplify access to FP7 calls, lowering the entry barriers for newcomers, and raising the average quality of submitted proposals. To this effect the four main objectives of this project are to optimise the tools at hand to the benefit of the networks clients, such as the partner search system developed in NMP TeAm, the use and further development of the NMP NCP Network website and other communication tools, to maximise the impact and add value to organised European wide events by organising parallel partnership building events, joint NMP NCP stands and joint awareness campaigns, to standardise the Network skills and provided services through the creation of documentation to aid the work of the NCPs and the actualization of the charter of services, staff exchanges, twinnings and targeted trainings and to forge and utilize the links with NMP related Networks, Technology platforms, the Enterprise Europe Network and the International collaboration programme.
This project builds on the results and the achievements of the FP7 NMP NCP Network project NMP TeAm funded under NMP-2008-4.0-11 - NCP trans-national activities in April 2009 including the further improvement of the partner search tool and the interactive website, the training activities, the partnership building and other networking events and the cooperation with the NMP related Networks. New modules for training activities will be introduced to assist NCPs target specific sub-groups of the NMP clientele, namely SMEs, RTOs as well as international partners. Importance will be based on strengthening the ties within the Network, an essential ingredient for stronger and more effective collaboration through team building activities.
