Is this course right for me?
Target Audience: Academic/Research staff - all levels
This interactive information session will provide an overview of the opportunities available to staff under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) scheme of Horizon 2020. Attendees will receive advice on key considerations in planning and writing their RISE proposal, including hints and tip based on previous successful applications.
RISE promotes international and intersectoral collaboration through research and Innovation staff exchanges and the sharing of knowledge and best practice. Research staff at all levels, as well as managerial, technical and administrative staff are eligible for staff exchanges between participating organisations. A RISE grant also provides funding towards the organisation of workshops and events involving the partners.
With an overall success rate of 23% for the 2016 Call (and 26.8% for the 2015 call), the 2017 RISE deadline could offer an attractive opportunity for developing new partnerships or enhancing existing relationships with academic and non-academic organisations. RISE offers the opportunity to build partnerships with both European partners (intersectoral) and with non-European Partners.
Participants will gain a detailed understanding of the key considerations involved in the planning, writing and submitting of a RISE proposal, as well as hearing hints and tips based on experiences of successful RISE grantees.
This session will be particularly useful to colleagues currently preparing a RISE application for the 5 April 2017 deadline.
At the end of the session, you will have:
- an understanding of the aims of RISE and the types of projects that can be funded
- an understanding of the key considerations involved in the planning, writing and submitting of a RISE proposal

We want our events to run at full capacity to ensure value for money and to get the most from group interactions and discussions. Cancelling attendance at a course should only be done as a last resort (some of our events are delivered by consultants and we would incur a high fee if we need to cancel events based on low numbers). Demand is high for our events with many having a waiting list and when a booking is made, others are turned away on the strength of that booking. If you have to cancel an event we would appreciate as much notice as possible (at least 48 hours), and this can be done via the "go to my bookings" link on the right.
