Short term scientific missions

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, serving as a key tool to support SHINE COST Action (CA18236). They allow participating scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another Participating COST Country. STSMs are aimed to promote research collaborations, to learn about new research techniques or to perform numerical modelling or experiments using instruments/tools and/or methodologies not available in or of interest for the home institution/laboratory of the Applicant. An STSM should specifically fit in the scientific objectives of the SHIINE COST Action (CA18236). General instructions for application and eligibility criteria are reported below.

 Please see  instructions for applying to undertake a STSM
