MIRRIS COACHING SEMINAR: an Activity Plan to increase the Croatian participation

MIRRIS and Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia have gathered today a group of key stakeholders to work together on the implementation of measures related to the set-up of a European support grant office since a scheme structure that will be presented by KU Leuven from Belgium does not exist at the Croatian Universities.

The purpose of this MIRRIS Coaching Seminar is to transfer the knowledge and operational experience on the above noted topic in a very practical way to allow the organisations in charge of implementing activities to focus on critical factors and design the most appropriate actions and tools with the purpose of wider outreach. The workshop was based on the experience of Stijn Delauré, Head of unit, International Research Funds, KU Leuven Research Coordination Office (University of Leuven), Belgium and facilitated by the MIRRIS team, represented by Anita Tregner-Mlinaric, META and Christian Saublens, EURADA.

The MIRRIS coaching activities aim to provide EU13 Member States with practical experience to design and implement novel tools to enhance the participation of national R&D organisations and SMEs in H2020. The coaching focuses on priorities selected at the end of a participative open process that resulted in a roadmap of priority solutions.


MIRRIS (Mobilizing Institutional Reform for Research and Innovation Systems) is a Coordination and Support Action  aiming at identifying the strengths and weaknesses of R&I performance in ERA and Framework Programmes of the EU12 and Croatia and activate initiatives to improve participation to Horizon 2020.
MIRRIS seeks to promote a more effective participation to the European Research Area and Framework Programmes, by 1) understanding success factors 2) identifying key actions and 3) mobilizing stakeholders for improving performance and better exploiting H2020 and synergies with ESIF. To achieve this goal MIRRIS will organize 3 rounds of policy dialogue in each target country, promote mutual learning and prepare a road map for implementation.
