A very inspiring topic for us here at RISE is sharing all the progress and hard work we put in meeting our goals and vision. If you've been wondering what our team has been up to then why not have a read. You’ll soon realise that during the first two years of its operation, RISE was very active in developing and submitting research proposals in various National and European calls for funding. 
 
In total RISE has submitted 41 proposals for funding in programs such as Horizon 2020, Cyprus Research and Innovation Foundation, Marie SkÅ‚odowska Curie, Joint Programming Initiative etc.

Out of the 30 evaluated proposals RISE achieved a success rate of 17% managing to secure €500,000. The evaluation of 11 more proposals is pending and there is a significant possibility that these statistics will be improved.
