New STSM application possible after June 1st 2015

Application Procedure for Short Term Scientific Missions

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) is a COST instrument that aims at supporting young scientists in developing scientific collaborations and strengthening existing networks by granting stays in other COST countries to learn new techniques or to use methods for maximizing the exchange of experience among the participants as exchanging ideas and knowledge across borders. STSMs principally target young scientists. More information on the COST STSMs can be found here. We invite all members of this COST Action to apply for STSMs.
