Researcher Declaration

A “Researcher Declaration” needs to be completed within 20 days of the start of the project for every researcher employed on a MSCA European Training Network or RISE project. PIs/Departments should submit the declaration online once the project has started and the Early Stage Researcher has started work (ETN) or the staff member has been on secondment (RISE). Follow the steps below to submit the Researcher declaration on the portal:

  • Login on the portal
  • Go to ‘manage projects
  • Click on ‘Continuous Reporting
  • Then click on the ‘researchers’ tab on the top

First click on ‘Add researcher’ and then ‘add declaration’. Remember to save and submit. Full guidance is available in the documents below.
