About the event

The call deadline for Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) “Research and Innovation Staff Exchange” (RISE) is 28. April 2020. If you intend to apply, it will pay off to participate in our information seminar.

Intersectoral and international staff exchanges are at the heart of the RISE scheme. For 2020, a call will be launched on 5. December 2019 with a budget of 80 million euro. Those who plan to participate in a proposal, should take part in our information seminar to learn the dos and don´ts of how to make a competitive RISE proposal submission.

RISE projects can be in any discipline or interdisciplinary, and you decide the topic of the research and innovation activities of the joint project. The support is in form of lump sums for the intended mobility and collaboration, because that is what RISE is about. And one in four projects are funded, making the success rate attractive.

Join the seminar in person or via streaming to learn more! Head of Unit Fredrik Olsson-Hector of the Research Executive Agency (REA), the European Commission, will give us all the latest information. To give a reality check, coordinator Salman Nazir from the University of South-Eastern Norway will present his experiences from applying and getting funding for the project ENHANCE

Please sign up and indicate if you will join in person or watch the streaming. Then we will send you the presentations afterwards.
