Short Profile DescriptionCOSMOS is a network of National Contact points for the Space theme under the EU's 7th Framework Programme for Research. The objective of the project is to build a network of Space NCPs. The participating NCPs will identify and exchange good practice, elaborate and conduct training courses for the NCP staff, gather and provide up-to-date information on Space and neighbouring topics, improve project partner search and develop common concepts to raise awareness for Space in FP7 and the Space NCPs. Thus a more balanced high quality NCP service will be ensured for the benefit of new as well as experi-enced FP7 applicants. One objective of COSMOS is to harmonise services offered by the participating Space NCPs.
