Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

STSMs allow scientists to learn from an institution or laboratory in another COST country – a concept of particular interest to young scientists.

STSMs can vary from one week to three months and up to six months for Early Stage Researchers. Applicants must be engaged in a research program in an institution from a COST country which must have accepted the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) of the Action concerned. Both home and host institution should be in a COST country which has accepted the MoU and has participated in the COST Action. The average contribution for a mission is a fixed grant based on the applicant’s budget request and the decision from the relevant assessment committee.
