STSMs

Short-term scientific missions (STSM) are exchange visits between researchers involved in a COST Action, allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another COST country. They are aimed at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants’ institutions or laboratories. STSM are intended especially for young researchers.

A single and basic CV will be not be sufficient for evaluating the proposal and a research proposal expected to be performed during the STSM has to be added for helping the reviewers to assess the proposal.

In addition, we also remind you that the total amount that can be requested is 2500 euro for a period that should last minimum one week (5 calendar days) up to a maximum of 3 months (90 calendar days).
The total amount of a STSM should not exceed EUR 2 500 up to 3 months (or EUR 3 500 for ECI – above 3 months). ECI means an Early Career Investigator and defines a researcher whose career spun less than 8 years between the date of the PhD/doctorate (or similar experience) and the date of involvement in the COST Action.

We remain at your disposal for any further remark or question.
