Information Event: MSCA Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) 2018, London

The UK Research Office (UKRO), in its capacity as UK National Contact Point for the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), is holding an information event for organisations interested in applying to the 2018 MSCA Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Action (RISE) call, which opens on 22 November 2017 and has a deadline of 21 March 2018.

Aim of session

The event aims to provide participants with an overview of the RISE scheme. Participants should gain a clear understanding of the proposal format and the key considerations related to planning, writing and submitting proposals. There will also be ample opportunity to ask questions.

Aim of the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) Action

RISE supports projects which promote international and/or inter-sectoral collaboration through staff exchanges and the sharing of knowledge and best practice. The scheme involves organisations from the academic and non-academic sectors, organisations based in Europe (EU Member States and Associated Countries) and outside of Europe (third countries).

Who should attend?

The event is aimed at staff at UK academic and non-academic organisations, including industry, who are planning to submit a proposal to the RISE 2018 call.
