The network of National Contact Points (NCPs) is the European Union’s main structure dedicated to supporting the participation of resident researchers in different countries across the world in Horizon Europe, the European Commission’s biggest research and innovation program. Brazil’s NCPs are tasked with getting more Brazilian researchers to take part in international research projects encompassed by the Horizon Europe Program, which has a budget of 95.5 billion euros.

The new cooperation program’s research areas are split into three pillars: Excellent Science, Innovative Europe and Global Challenges, and European Industrial Competitiveness. The latter pillar is divided into six clusters: Health; Culture, Creativity and an Inclusive Society; Civil Security for Society; Digital, Industry and Space; Climate, Energy and Mobility; and Food, Bioeconomy, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Environment.
