The National Contact Points (NCPs) coordinate and keep an overview of the participation of their country in the implementation of the EUSDR including all 11 Priority Areas. The role of the NCP is to promote the Strategy, inform relevant stakeholders on the national level of key developments and assist the European Commission in its facilitation role. The Priority Area Coordinators (PACs) ensure the implementation of the Action Plan. Each Priority Area is jointly coordinated by two participating countries - for PA7 these are Serbia and Slovakia. They are supported by a "Steering Group with national representatives from all EUSDR countries. The EUSDR Laboratory Group is a networking platform bringing together representatives of EU Cohesion Policy programmes, European Commission representatives and interested PACs. INTERACT Point Vienna, is involved in facilitating interaction between stakeholders, managing the website, dissemination, supporting exchange among PACs and NCPs in their tasks and promoting the Strategy at the European level. 4
