National Contact Points List

BTSF National Contact Points coordinate BTSF participation and liaise with the Commission services and contractors. They are designated by EU Member States, enlargement and neighbourhood countries and some non-EU countries. Competent authority staff from these countries interested in participating in training should contact their national contact point.

Other interested parties from non-EU countries should refer to the relevant contractor responsible for the activity in which they wish to take part.

This database provides the National Contact Points (NCPs) details, organised by countries and their respective EU membership status. Countries from outside the European Union are also listed. 

In addition to the COUNTRY, names of the National Contact Points, organisations, and other common fields that appear in each contact item, the following criteria could be helpful while searching:

  • EU Member States
  • Candidate Country
  • Potential Candidate Country
  • EFTA/EEA Country
  • Other/Non-EU Country

Please use the search filters if required to find the desired location. NCPs provide BTSF with links to relevant organisations within their National Competent Authorities, which might be useful for the objectives of the BTSF Initiative.

The information published in this list will be updated regularly and all involved stakeholders will be grateful if you contribute to its maintenance it by informing us of any changes in the contact details.

Please inform the BTSF Team if your contact details have changed, or if you have any suggestions to keep this section as useful as possible. You can write to /

Thank you for your contribution.
