How to start international cooperation in FAFB?

EU Member States and several non-EU Member States have nominated National Contact Points (NCPs) for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology (FAFB). They disseminate information, create networking opportunities, and organise training sessions. Some NCPs in non-EU Member States have lists of organisations in their country that are interested in collaborating with European partners on FAFB research topics.

So do not wait – get in touch with your local NCP!
