RISE: What is the the recruitment policy of researchers in a RISE project? Can these researchers be reimbursed from the RISE project before the realization of the secondments? Should these researchers work on the specific RISE project or can they be recruited in another project in the organization, 6 months before the realization of the secondments?

Researchers are not recruited into a RISE project, and formally there is no salary funding available in the budget. They should be working in research (paid from other sources) at their sending organisation for at least six months before going on their first RISE secondment. When on secondment, they continue to be paid by that other funding source, and simply receive the €2100 per month allowance to cover travel/accommodation/living costs while away. While on secondment, they should work exclusively on the RISE project.
