8th Call for STSM Applications for Missions occurring between 15th of October 2017 and 30th of April 2018.

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening existing networks and fostering collaboration between researchers. A STSM should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action, whilst at the same time allowing those partaking in the missions to learn new techniques, gain access to specific data, instruments and / or methods not available in their own institutions / organisations. Participation of “Early Career Investigator” (ECI) in STSM is particularly encouraged. An applicant is considered as “Early Career Investigator” when his career spans less than 8 years between the date of the PhD/doctorate (or similar experience) and the date of involvement in the COST Action TD 1402.
