CALL FOR STSMs

 

The aim of a Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) grant is to contribute to the scientific objectives of a COST Action. These Missions aim at strengthening the Action by allowing scientists to go an institution in another COST country to foster collaboration or to learn a new technique not available in their own institution/laboratory. They are particularly intended for young scientists, but senior researchers is also possible.

The call for the STSM (Short-Term Scientific Mission) is continuosly open and the deadline to apply in this funding period is February, 15th 2021 for activities to be carried out before March, 15th 2021. The application must be submitted via the e-COST system at least 7 days before the start the mission.  Between March 15th and May 1st 2021, it is not bureaucratically possible to manage STSMs since we will be in the transition between funding periods. (STSMs partially overlapping this interval could also be considered under special circumstances).

Financial support
A grant usually covers travel and subsistence. The financial support is a contribution to the cost of a STSM and may not necessarily cover all the costs.

Applicant and Host Institution
The Applicant should normally be engaged in a program of research as a post graduate student or postdoctoral fellow or be employed in an institution of a COST country having accepted the MoU of the Action. This institution shall be actively participating in the COST Action. The home and the host institution can be public or private. A STSM may only be approved:
  • From a home institution in a COST participating country to a host institution in a COST participating country or to a formally approved host institution in non-COST country
  • From a formally approved home institution in a Near Neighbour country to a host institution in a COST participating country.
The Applicant is responsible for obtaining the agreement of the host institution, before submitting his/her application.
