The “E-booklet of Best Practices“ was compiled to provide practical help to all National Contact Points (NCPs) of Horizon 2020 programme Societal Challenge 5 “Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials“ (SC5). The booklet facilitates and fosters the common knowledge and best practices shared within the member organisations of NCPs CaRE network. The main aim was to create a versatile practical guiding manual, which would identify and openly disseminate good practices of supporting interested researchers and programme applicants within the network.
