One of the events objectives are to: develop and strengthen existing capacities of CELAC National Contact Points (NCP), and expand the NCP network in the region. To achieve these objectives, there are several regional workshops foreseen along the project, which have the participation of both: LAC beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries of ALCUE NET project. The project ALCUE NET will support the participation of one NCP from a non-beneficiary CELAC country to broaden the LAC participation.
