They provide independent, non-competitive and complimentary advisory services and are available to all companies, universities and research facilities located in Germany.

NCP DIT offers consultation services for the whole spectrum of digital and industrial technologies and provides specially prepared information about funding programme contents and participation rules in the forefront of calls for proposals.

The services offered by the NCP DIT include the following:

On a competitively neutral basis, the NCP DIT cooperates with other information and advisory centres for programmes of the European Union at national and European level and arranges contacts to service agencies.
