Empowering Innovation and Collaboration in Europe

We believe in the power of collaboration to foster innovative, smart, and sustainable solutions that accelerate growth, create jobs, and improve people’s lives.

Together with our sister company EURICE, we are a leading consultancy company in international collaborative research and innovation management, bringing together academia, industry and various players from the R&I landscape to promote knowledge-sharing, drive breakthrough discoveries and help build a vibrant innovation ecosystem in Europe.

The RISE team’s particular focus is on strengthening research and innovation capacities in countries addressed by Horizon Europe’s Widening Programme EU-13 Member States in particular.

Research & Innovation Management

From project design and proposal writing to smooth implementation and successful valorisation: we take our partners through the whole project lifecycle - and even beyond.


Capacity Building

Sharing knowledge, questioning old patterns, developing new skills and overcoming barriers: with our training activities, we strive to help build bridges and advance together.


Fostering Innovation Ecosystems

Connecting people, fostering new relationships and strengthening existing ones: we believe in the power of longstanding, trustful networks to initiate change and help establish thriving innovation ecosystems in Europe.

Managing Director of EURICE,
Founder and Managing Director of RISE
"Building on EURICE’s more than twenty years of experience in successfully managing collaborative R&I endeavours, it simply felt right to open a new chapter, join forces with a group of brilliant people in Croatia and mutually share our knowledge to bolster research and innovation and contribute to closing innovation gaps. It's not just about opening a new site and getting bigger; it's about strengthening the teams on both sides and adding value to our services for the benefit of the partners and project teams we are working with."
Head of RISE
"With RISE, our mission is to encourage collaboration among academic research organisations and industry and to provide professional training programmes to support the next generation of innovators – especially in Widening countries – in creating and nurturing a vibrant culture of innovation and entrepreneurship. Personally, I am particularly thrilled to work with such a dedicated team and bring in my experience from various Life Science and technology transfer initiatives to connect people and projects."
