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

MIRRIS and Technology Centre of the Academy of Sciences (Technology Center ACSR) have gathered today a group of key stakeholders to work together on the implementation of synergies of EU funding.
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 for the purpose of wider outreach.
The workshop was based on the experience of Špela Stres, Head of Technology Transfer and Innovation Center at the Jožef Štefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia and facilitated by the MIRRIS team, represented by Anita Tregner-Mlinaric, META Group and Christian Saublens, EURADA. Mathieu Doussineau, from DG JRC, was also present given the high interest this coaching exercise represents for the Stairway to Excellence initiative.
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.
