Research and innovation projects through mobility - MSCA RISE call 2020
Deadline: 28 April 2020
Marie Sklodowska-Curie (MSCA) Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) funds short-term exchanges of personnel between academic, industrial and commercial organisations throughout the world. It aims at promoting international and inter-sectoral collaboration through research and innovation staff exchanges. It helps people develop their knowledge, skills and careers, while building links between organisations working in different sectors of the economy, including universities, research institutes and SMEs.
Partners organisations get together and propose a joint project. Proposals should highlight networking opportunities, sharing of knowledge and the skills development of staff members.
The grant supports the secondment of staff members for one month to one year (short-term). They must be engaged in or linked to research and innovation activities at their home organisation for a certain time prior to the secondment.
They return to their home organisation after the secondment, to pass on their knowledge.
Proposals must include at least three partners, which can be academic or non-academic organisations from three different countries. At least two of these should be from the EU or associated countries. Partners from further afield can also join.
Organisations from any country from Latin America and the Caribbean (including Colombia) can participate in MSCA RISE projects.
MSCA-RISE involves organisations from the academic and non-academic sectors (in particular SMEs), based in Europe (EU Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries) and outside Europe (third countries).
Support is provided for the development of partnerships in the form of a joint research and innovation project. This is aimed at knowledge sharing via international as well as intersectoral mobility, based on secondments of research and innovation staff (exchanges) with an in-built return mechanism. The organisations constituting the partnership contribute directly to the implementation of a joint research and innovation project by seconding and/or hosting eligible staff members. Secondments shall always take place between legal entities independent from each other.
MSCA-RISE proposals can focus either on one dimension of mobility (intersectoral / international), or include a combination of both.
Exchanges can be for both early-stage and experienced researchers and can also include administrative, managerial and technical staff directly involved in the research and innovation activities of the proposal.
Exchanges with institutions from and to third countries can be intersectoral as well as within the same sector.
Secondments between institutions established in third countries or within the same EU Member State or Horizon 2020 Associated Country will not be supported.
Deadline: 28 April 2020, 17:00 Brussels time (10:00 Colombian time)
