Short Term Scientific Missions - STSM

The aim of a Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) (exchange visits) is to strengthen the scientific objectives of the COST Action. The mission’s aims are (i) consolidating and (ii) further extending the existing network by funding scientists to join any institution or laboratory of Action members in other COST countries. The benefits for STSM attendees are (i) learning new techniques, (ii) undertaking measurements not possible at their own institution. The duration time of a STSM is minimum 5 working days and maximum 3 months. For early stage researchers (less than PhD + 8 years) an extension of maximum 3 months (6 months in total) can be approved. Detailed information and application form can be found in the PDF-document.
