About Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

COST actions are about networking, fostering collaboration and advancing research and innovation. Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) constitute a powerful tool designed to serve these objectives. They are mobility grants that support a researcher’s visit to an institute in another COST participating country in order to get trained (or train) on new methods, and techniques, gain access to data and tools not available in their home institute, share knowledge and closely collaborate with researchers of the host institute. STSMs are intended especially, but not solely, for young researchers and can further advance their academic careers.
