EurNegVec Short Term Scientific Missions to promote exchange within an Action’s scientific objectives

A STSM allows a scientist (especially early stage researchers - ESRs) to go to a lab in another country of the COST Action to learn new techniques or make measurements using instruments and /or methodologies not available in his/her own lab.

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are aimed at supporting individual mobility and at strengthening the existing networks and fostering collaborations by allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another Participating COST Country or an approved NNC institution or an approved IPC institution.

A STSM should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action, while at the same time allowing applicants to learn new techniques or gain access to specific instruments and/or methods not available in their own institutions.

Standard STSMs need to take place according to the following rules:

- be a minimum duration of 5 days;

- be a maximum duration of 90 days;

- needs to be carried out in their entirety within a single grant period and within the Action's lifetime.
