How to improve performance of new Member States in accessing EU funding opportunities for R&I? MIRRIS explains how

Vienna, 28 January 2015

New European Member States are statistically under-represented, compared to EU15, in terms of participation to FP7 – the former EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation – and do not get to fully exploit EU funding opportunities. MIRRIS initiative explains which are the underlying causes of this gap. MIRRIS is providing interpretation tools for anyone involved in planning, funding, or supporting research in his-own country and interested in knowing which are the key participation factors in order to leverage to design, organize and implement effective support to EU programmes participation.

Why are some European countries excelling in exploiting EU direct funding for Research and Innovation, while some others leg behind? And why does the disparity in terms of participation and access to EU direct funds seems to concern notably new Member States – the so-called EU13? Which are the reasons behind these gap?

These are the questions leading the research of MIRRIS (Mobilizing Institutional Reforms for Research and Innovation Systems), a EU-funded Support Action aiming at offering an overview of the heterogeneous European panorama in terms of exploitation levels and support mechanisms as to what concerns access to EU funded programmes/projects, with a special focus on the 13 new European Member States.
