UK National Contact Point, Transport Policy & Applications, EU's 7th Framework Programme of Research & Technological Development (FP5-FP7)
Finella Mckenzie is the UK National Contact Point (NCP) supporting the Department for Transport and the external research community on transport policy and applications research across the FP7 Thematic Priorities of: Transport (including GALILEO), Information and Communication Technologies, Energy, Security, Environment, Socio-Economics and Space. Providing advice also on related initiatives including: Marco Polo, Intelligent Energy Europe, Trans-European Networks Transport, the EU Technology Platforms and Joint Technology Initiatives and the European COST and EUREKA Programmes.

The aim is to ensure that the coverage of FP7 is responsive to the priorities of the Department, UK industry, Local Government and Regulators; that participation by the UK research community is accessible and fair; that the results of Calls are transparent; and that project abstracts and the results of funded research are made available in a timely manner. The objective is to maximise the benefits arising from the UKs funding of the Framework Programme and its participation in it. This requires engagement in, and monitoring of, the formulation of workprogrammes and research topic specifications, engagement with key UK and European players and the wider research community, analysis and monitoring of programme implementation and timely logging of funded research categorised into priority themes.
