The NCN Office is a structure combining the efforts of a number of the NCN’s departments and teams. On a day-to-day basis, the Office is responsible for processing calls for proposals and organising meetings for experts at the peer review evaluation stage. The Office of the NCN is also the first line of support for grant recipients who carry out the projects; it handles the process of signing grant agreements, oversees their implementation, initiates international cooperation with other research-funding entities, and launches calls in the “Research” area under the third edition of the EEA and Norway Grants. The Office operates an information centre for applicants.
