The EaP NCPs received general information about Horizon 2020 and connected EU-funded programmes and learned the rules for participation, legal and financial administration, tips for proposal developing, partner search, etc. Also, the training included a big component on NCP practices in different EU countries that gave some food for thoughts for the newcomers. The meeting helped to establish personal contacts between the EaP NCPs.
