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

MIRRIS and State Development Education Agency (SEDA) have gathered today a group of high level stakeholders to work together on the policy and support measures that would stimulate further participation of Latvian researchers to the ERA and H2020. Among other, the Latvian stakeholders will receive a training in how to overcome the phenomena of the brain drain and ageing researchers and how to further retain and attract talents in the country. The scheme was presented by Pärtel-Peeter Pere, Head of Tendensor International AB office in Estonia and was facilitated by Anita Tregner-Mlinaric on behalf of MIRRIS Coordinator, META.

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 thus allowing the organisations in charge of implementing activities to focus on critical factors and to design the most appropriate actions and tools with the purpose of wider outreach.

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.
