EU Funding Opportunities (MSCA-Open Call) 2015

European Commission ​announced the Open call for proposal for the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Scheme of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) under Horizon 2020 Programme.

RISE Scheme has the easiest preparation processes of all MSCA Schemes and it has also a  growing success rate in Egypt during the last few years (IRSES - MSC under FP7)​.

It promotes international and inter-sector collaboration through research and innovation staff exchanges, and sharing of knowledge and ideas from research to market (and vice-versa) for the advancement of science and the development of innovation.

RISE activities should include development of joint research and innovation ​activities and/or networking activities, organisation of workshops and conferences to facilitate sharing of knowledge, new skills acquisition and career development for research and innovation staff members. The activities could be focused on one dimension of mobility (International / inter-sectoral) or a combination of both.


A consortium must be composed of at least 3 partners from 3 different countries. At least 2 of them should be from EU Member States or Associated Countries.
