Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE)

Purpose

RISE is an opportunity to encourage co-creation between various cross-cutting societal actors to accelerate innovation, create new realities and archive preferred futures. Boosting the achievement of the Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

 

The objective of the RISE projects is to promote international and intersectoral collaboration between participating organisations worldwide, through R&I staff exchanges, and sharing of knowledge and ideas from research to market (and vice-versa). RISE fosters a shared culture of R&I that welcomes and rewards creativity and entrepreneurship and helps to turn creative ideas into innovative products, services or processes. (Guide for Applicants H2020-MSCA-RISE-2019, p. 7)

 

The consortium (participating organistions) is expected to support the successful implementation of the RISE by planning and executing secondments, organising and taking part in R&I training, workshops, seminars, conferences, etc. aimed at sharing knowledge, acquiring new skills and developing the careers of the staff members involved. The content, quality, impact and added value of all of these activities should be detailed and justified in the proposal. (Guide for Applicants H2020-MSCA-RISE-2019, p. 22)

 

A RISE project must be composed of at least three organisations independent of each other, established in three different countries, of which at least two must be different MS and/or AC.

 

For RISE composed of MS/AC countries only, at least one organisation should belong to a different sector (academic or non-academic)

 

There is no pre-defined size, however, it is recommended to keep a size between 6 -10 beneficiaries.

Budget

RISE finances organisations from MS, AC and TC countries. Budget will be automatically calculated by multiplying 4,600 euros by the number of implemented Person-Month(s).

 

Within RISE, the duration of a secondment is measured in Person-Month(s) (PM). Secondment period means the period(s) spent by the staff member in a host organisation (including travel periods) for the purposes of the action.

The financial support is composed of two parts: a staff member unit cost of 2,100 EUR per PM, plus an institutional unit cost of a total of 2,500 EUR per PM. The institutional unit cost is split further into funds for research, training and networking costs of 1,800 EUR per PM of secondment, and funds for management and indirect costs of 700 EUR per PM.  Read more >>

Staff members must be (early-stage or experienced) researchers or administrative, managerial or technical staff supporting the R&I activities under the action. They must be actively engaged in or linked to R&I activities for at least one month (full-time equivalent) at the sending institution, before the first period of secondment.

Within a RISE, the same staff member can be seconded to different hosting organisations. The total duration of secondments per individual staff member is a maximum of 12 months and a minimum of one month, with a maximum of 540 PM per RISE project.
