RISE: A period of secondment might have significant organizational implications for the sending organisation. The work that that staff member was supposed to do within the sending organization might come to a standstill Strona 7 z 16 at the period of secondment. This is particulary the case for SME’s. Can (a part of) the budget for staff member unit cost (top up allowance of 2000 EUR) be used to recruit a replacement within the sending organisation?

The EU funding must be used for the purpose of the project (research and secondment) and in line with Annex 1 – description of work. Recruitment of staff is not supported by the RISE scheme.
