Trans-national co-operation among National Contact Points for Socio-economic sciences and the Humanities (NET4SOCIETY)
Start date: Feb 1, 2008, End date: Jan 31, 2011 PROJECT  FINISHED 

A strong and efficient Network of National Contacts Points (NCP) is not only elementary to the success of the Seventh EU Framework Programme but also to the realization of the European Research Area. The trans-national project “NET4SOCIETY” will strive to achieve this declared goal. For its proposed duration of three years, “NET4SOCIETY” will support the creation and establishment of a functional Network of Socioeconomic Sciences and the Humanities (SSH)-NCPs. “NET4SOCIETY” will offer specific high quality training sessions (based on a questionnaire that will be sent to all SSH-NCPs), dedicated workshops, and mentoring and brokerage events. The project will provide targeted tools such as a best practice handbook and a database for the specific area of “Socioeconomics and the Humanities”, including a refined partner-search tool. These tools will be published on the project’s dedicated Internet site ( Through the project “NET4SOCIETY” the first network of SSH-NCPs will be created. The Network consists of a total of 38 beneficiaries, including NCPs from International Cooperation Partner Countries (ICPCs). A core group of Work Packages leaders, including the Third Country Task Force Leader, will work closely together with the Co-ordinator to implement the project’s objectives. All beneficiaries and natural members will be involved in the surveys, which build the foundation of several Network activities, will have access to all Network events and tools. NET4SOCIETY is opened to all SSH-NCPs, including those who have declined their official participation. All network beneficiaries and “natural members” will be informed on a regular basis; they will have the possibility to contribute to the project’s objectives, participate in the network events and benefit fully from the projects results.
