NCP Brussels and European research programmes

NCP Brussels, your official contact point to access European funding for research and innovation.

Does your company or research centre have a research or innovation project idea ? Or do you want to solve a technical problem via research, development and innovation activities?

NCP Brussels can help you make the most out of the main source of European funding for research and innovation projects, namely the Horizon 2020 – the EU Programme for Research and Innovation.

As the official contact point in the Brussels-Capital Region for this programme, the NCP Brussels team provides support and guidance to companies, universities, associations and research centres based in Brussels via a professional service:

  • Information on the latest European funding opportunities in the area of research and innovation
  • Individual guidance for project applicants (coordinators or partners) during the entire lifespan of the project
    • During project proposal drafting, we help you to:
      • Validate the project idea and find the corresponding European funding programme
      • Identify quality partners through our NCP networks or through participation in B2B meetings organised by the Enterprise Europe Network
      • Handle the financial, legal and administrative aspects associated with delivering a European project
      • Anticipate the intellectual property rights aspects
    • During implementation of the project, we help you to:
      • Prepare your financial and technical reporting
      • Solve any problems that may arise (failing partner for example)
    • At the end of the project, we help you to:
      • Develop strategies for exploitation and dissemination of your research findings (including identifying suitable partners in collaboration with Enterprise Europe Brussels)
      • Find European funding to pursue the project
