  2. INCO Experts
    The function of the official INCO NCPs is no longer valid under Horizon 2020. In this light, the following guidelines have been adopted by the organizing committee for the selection and reimbursement of INCO Experts for their participation in the conference:

    • For EU countries: Former INCO NCPs or other experts suggested by the host organisation
    • For International Partner Countries:
      • former INCO NCP’s unless the country has appointed an H2020 contact point
      • For countries with no former INCO NCPs and no H2020 contact points, NCPs coordinators could be funded pending the availability of funds
    • Participants from organizations which participate in INCONTACT 2020 will not be funded (they must use the project’s funds)
    • Only one participant per country will be funded, on a first come first served basis.

For INCO experts entitled to reimbursement please see the Reimbursement Rights and Conditions.
