What is Ideal-ist NCP Network?

Ideal-ist is the first quality-labelled international ICT partner search network, basing on the well established NCPs in the EU27 and Associated States and part-funded by the European Commission.

How to use Partner Search service?

Partner Search is the unique feature of Ideal-ist. The Ideal-ist Network creates opportunities to find partners to build a consortium for a ICT project. There are 3 following ways to use Partner Search:

  • If an organization already has a project idea and needs to complete its consortium, then it can launch its own partner search.
  • If an organization is looking for further partners in its running IP or NoE projects, then they can engage in action for a competitive call.
  • If an organization is willing to join a forming consortium in its areas of interest, then it can subscribe to the ideal-ist mailing list.

Ideal-ist Partner Search Facility helps find partners for the ICT project idea under the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union (2007-2013), working in a proactive way. 

The National Ideal-ist Representative (in cooperation with the ideal-ist Quality Team) will help the organizations identify partners’ specific to the ICT call and objective being addressed.
