Development Stakeholder Collaboration Platform (22RISE)
We aim to build a powerful platform for international collaboration, built on institutional and financial sustainability.
Reaching out & developing partnership agreements
We use Customer Relation Management (CRM) in HR&S International (all countries together). Even though CRM was developed to meet the needs of the private sector, slightly modified versions of the soft wares are useful also for the development of our 22RISE platform.
- We start with the free version of HubSpot
- invite all team members of all country branches and HQ to share the same platform.
- We invite everyone to upload institutions that they perceive may have an overlapping mandate with HR&S specific country, region or HR&S international.
- Team members are welcome to become “owners” of institutions and make their choices visible in the software.
- Each “owner” invest time to compile information about the institution in detail and if the institution may or may not be a potential partner. They compile the information in the HubSpot software.
(Stakeholder analysis, funds available vs interest)
- We identify together the highly ranked institutions.
- The HR&S countries with interest in a certain partner develops a pitch (5s, 30s, 5 min).
- We look for “door openers”, persons we know who work at the institution.
- We take contact and share the pitch.
- We follow-up in relation to the response.
- We sign contracts when both partners come to an agreement.
Partners & potential partners
Visiting programme for technicians
The opportunity includes and application form for trainings to technicians in developing OIC countries to enable them to spend 4-6 weeks at a center of excellence/ university in OIC member states, and learn the operations, trouble shooting and related details of state-of-the-art instrumentations. The purpose of this training is to strengthen the capacity of technical manpower in the effective and optimal use of expensive and sophisticated research equipments. Their short term visit is expected to foster links for further collaboration.
Fellowship programme for young researchers
The opportunity includes and application form for research fellowships to young researcher in OIC countries to enable them to spend 6-12 months at a relevant center of excellence in many listed institutions of OIC member states. The purpose of these fellowships is to enhance the research and development capacity of promising researchers and engineers, especially those who are from LDCs at the beginning of their research career, helping them to foster linkages for further collaboration in their fields.
Research fellowships to young women
The opportunity includes and application form for research fellowships to young women researcher/scientists/engineers in OIC countries to enable them to spend 6-12 months at a relevant center of excellence in many listed institutions of OIC member states. The purpose of these fellowships is to enhance the research and development capacity of promising women researchers and engineers from LDCs at the beginning of their research career, helping them to foster linkages for further collaboration in their fields.
The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP) aims to help increase the number of women in the nuclear field, supporting an inclusive workforce of both men and women who contribute to and drive global scientific and technological innovation. Named after pioneer physicist and twice Nobel Prize laureate Marie Sklodowska-Curie, the Programme aims to inspire and encourage young women to pursue a career in the nuclear field, by providing highly motivated female students with scholarships for Master’s programmes and an opportunity to pursue an internship facilitated by the IAEA. Selected students receive a scholarship for Master’s programmes in nuclear related studies at accredited universities. They are also provided with an opportunity to pursue an internship facilitated by the IAEA for up to 12 months. Scholarships are awarded annually to 100 plus students depending on the availability of funds. Consideration is given to field of study, and geographic and linguistic diversity.

The importance of women in science Scientific breakthroughs have given the world previously unimaginable benefits. Marie Sklodowska-Curie’s pioneering work on radioactivity in the late 1800s enabled us to harness the power of the atom, producing countless benefits to humankind. As the world faces pressures from a changing climate, growing populations, food insecurity and increased energy demand, maintaining a qualified workforce to drive innovation and productivity is all the more crucial. Nuclear related studies can help countries tackle several of these challenges, and the demand is high for qualified professionals in this field and will continue to grow. In its unique mandate to accelerate and enlarge the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, the IAEA is at the forefront of research and technology transfer and depends on a stable pool of qualified technical professionals to fulfil its mission. This workforce does and must include women. Women, however, are far from being adequately represented in the nuclear field. They often face barriers to enter and progress in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), right from their school years. The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme seeks to enable more women from around the world to pursue a career in the nuclear field. The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme builds up gender-balanced capacities relevant to nuclear energy, other nuclear applications, nuclear safety and nuclear security, as well as non‑proliferation.

Events for Development institutions, f ex traditional Aid institutions, often informs about the HR&S strategies, experiences and lessons learned.
2. Knowledge-sharing on-line sessions
We offer on-line knowledge sharing sessions with our partners in SSA. The purpose is to give advice on a challenge identified by the HR&S partners that is an area of expertise of the supporter.
3. Win-win collaboration
We offer partners to support with products, services or financially, targeting a certain programme that has overlaps with the supporters own agenda, ensuring a win-win situation. We offer workshops where we discuss a win-win collaboration and we offer coaching for the implementation. Partners are invited to a series of workshops/webinars where win-win strategies are developed. We benefit from the HR&S SfC. When strategies are implemented the HR&S will coach.

Sida & Challenge funds
Sida: “To overcome the systemic lack of capital in many developing markets and enhance innovation, Sida uses Challenge Funds to finance entrepreneurs that have a strong commitment to drive sustainable development.”
“Sida finances various Challenge Funds with different regional and thematic priorities so that development can reach as many people as possible. The funds should always address a key development issue which otherwise is not addressed by market forces. Challenge Funds can also be used to stimulate and support innovations in research and the civil society, for example by investing in local knowledge to improve governance, transparency, rights and access to services or to strengthen peoples’ voice and influence.”
“A Challenge Fund is aimed at small social/sustainable enterprises that are just starting out or that want to expand to a new market. Focus is often placed upon the innovative aspects of a sustainable and responsible business idea. A Challenge Fund therefore accepts a higher level of risk in investment than most other investors would.”
