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

MIRRIS and Polish Agency for Enterprise Development (PARP) have gathered today a group of National Contact Points (NCPs) and high level stakeholders to work together on the policy and to support measures that would stimulate further participation of Polish researchers to the ERA and H2020. Among other, the Polish stakeholders will receive a training in how to prepare a business plan and a business model in SME instrument, collaborative projects (RIA, IA, FTI) and for Research Centres, including H2020 projects – Teaming/ Twinning/ ERA. The scheme was presented by Antonio Carbone from APRE 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.
