As part of the new Horizon Europe programme, the European Commission wished to set up “National Contact Points” (PCN) in order to provide the best possible support for project leaders. MESRI (Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation) deploys, manages and leads a PCN team intended to improve French participation in European research and innovation funding procedures.
The National Contact Points are responsible for:
- Information and awareness campaigns concerning Horizon Europe project funding opportunities for French research, development and innovation communities
- Helping, advising and training in the programme’s operating procedures
- Indicating the existence of other funding sources (European and national) and directing communities towards those better suited to meet their needs; also, towards the support services available for these funds
In this context, Julie RAFTON-JOLIVET – Business and international development manager at Techtera – has been recruited and will be appointed as our Industrial Contact Point. She will devote 40% of her time to this mission.
As someone working in the textile and flexible materials sector, you now have at your disposal a person who knows our industry very well and who will advise you on Europe … Take advantage of it!
