Commission issues guidelines for evaluation of National Coordination Centers
The Commission has adopted guidelines for evaluation of National Coordination Centres' capacity to manage EU funds. This is a new step in the implementation of the Regulation establishing the Competence Centre.
According to the Regulation, a NCC should be a public sector entity, or mostly owned by the State, or performing public administration functions, and having the capacity to support the Competence Centre and the Network in fulfilling their mission. It shall either possess or have access to research and technological expertise in cybersecurity. It shall also have the capacity to engage effectively and coordinate with industry, the public sector, the academic and research community and citizens.
Each Member State shall nominate its NCC by the end of the year, and may ask the Commission for an opinion to assess its capacity to manage EU funding. The Commission will have three months to reply.
