Short-Term Scientific Missions

Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) are an instrument to encourage short-term research visits between members of a COST Action, and has a particular interest in aiding in the mobility of Early Career Investigators, e.g. PhD students. STSM grants contribute to expenses for accommodation, traveling and subsistence according to a regulated COST scheme.

The Multi3Generation COST Action CA18231 is now officially open for Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) applications, please check our call for proposals for more details. We are implementing a monthly rolling deadline for the current Grant Period, which ends in April 30, 2021. We will collect applications in the last day of each month, starting now, and the last collection of proposals for the given Grant Period (GP) will be at the end of January. One important details is that all STSM proposals submitted within a given GP must be completed within the same GP.

One very important point is that ​applicants and hosts must make sure they follow national regulations and recommendations regarding the COVID pandemic, travelling, social distancing, and other requirements​.

Please find more information on how to submit an application in the STSM user guide and the COST Vademecum or check this list of documents made public by COST for a broad overview.
