Further to the pre-announcement of the NPP 2007-2013 for a Strategic Project Call in
2012 by the Programme Monitoring Committee. The Programme Secretariat invites
interested strategic project applicants to submit their project ideas on this Strategic
Project Idea Template. The template will be assessed by the Programme Secretariat to
ensure that the project idea has the potential and enough substance to be developed into a
strategic project. It should be clear from the project description that the strategic project
idea will cover the expectations outlined in the relevant Terms of Reference.

All admissible project ideas will be widely disseminated through the NPP news section,
NPP network and distributed in an NPP news flash with the title of “Strategic projects
under development” to assist project idea holders with their partner search and project
idea development.

Development Clinic with Programme Secretariat Desk Officers in Copenhagen to discuss
their strategic project at their own expense. In addition, applicants are also invited to
attend a “How to apply” seminar on February 9th 2012 in Copenhagen.
