We are inviting you to submit proposals for Short Time Scientific Missions
(STSMs) between May and November 2017. Applications
outside this timeframe will be discarded.
STSMs are aimed at strengthening existing networks and fostering
collaborations by allowing researchers to visit an institution or
organization participating in a given COST Action. An STSM should
specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST
Action and, at the same time, allow the researchers to learn new
techniques, gain access to specific data, instruments and/or
methods not available at their home institution.
The deadline for this call is February 28, 2017.
All proposals will be reviewed by our Steering Committee, the results will
be announced end of March 2017.
Please note that an STSM application must include the following
1) A proposal including the proposal title, motivation, and a description
of the proposed project
2) A CV of the applicant
3) A host agreement specifying if the host will provide matching funds
4) The confirmation (pdf file) generated by the electronic eCOST system.
