Short-Term Scientific Missions

Short-Term Scientific Missions (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. 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. It will normally not exceed EUR 2500 (EUR 3500 for Early Stage Researchers).

Below is a list of current and/or completed STSMs
