RISE and ITN infoday: SAVE THE DATE!
Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) is a type Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions supporting mobility (secondments) to countries outside of EU and between academic sector and industry within and outside EU. RISE proposal have success rates around 30% in general and within CEITEC MU, we managed to get financing for 75% of submitted applications (3 out of 4). We are the coordinators of two RISE consortia! If you have the right collaboration, RISE is certainly a great option to get flexible support for travel and research costs (though not salaries)!
Innovative Training Networks (ITN) are Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions financing salaries, research and training costs of PhD students recruited into an international network focused on a specific interdisciplinary research agenda. While the success rates have recently got unreasonably low, involvement as a partner in the consortium requires very little effort during preparation and is still highly advisable. As for coordination, we are always open to challenges at the Grants Office!
Both calls are open each year, deadline RISE is March, for ITN it is January. Competitive proposal requires about 6 months for preparation (4 months formation of consortium and project objective, 2 months intense writing).
We would like to invite you to a short introduction of the RISE and ITN funding schemes, with focus on the practical setup of the consortia and collaborative goals suitable for the projects.
