What is a RISE action?
The RISE scheme promotes international and inter-sectoral collaboration through research and innovation staff exchanges, and through sharing of knowledge and ideas from academia to industry (and vice-versa).
RISE in practice
Applicants propose a joint R&I action, implemented through:
- secondments (main modality)
- training & networking activities: organising and taking part in workshops, seminars, summer schools, conferences.
Proposals should include at least 3 partners (which can be universities, research institutions or non-academic organisations, SMEs) from 3 different countries → at least 2 of them must be established in different EU or associated countries.
- no maximum size for the number of participating organisations
- BUT maximum 540 person-months of EU funded secondments per action
Duration of RISE projects = up to 4 years
Rules for secondments
- Staff members (managerial, technical or administrative roles) of any nationality and any career level can be seconded, as long as they are actively engaged or linked to R&D activities and if they have been at the sending institution at least 6 months prior to the secondment.
- Total duration of secondments per individual staff member: max. 12 months, min. 1 month
- Staff members must return to the sending organisation after the secondment to pass on their knowledge.
