STSM and ITC grants

Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM)

One of the popular COST Action networking tools is STSMs (Short Term Scientific Missions) which are exchange visits between researchers allowing them to work together on a particular research question related to the COST Action’s objectives. Over the lifetime of the Action we awarded 30 STSMs.

Our STSM coordinator was Catherine Kanellopoulou.

A report on the STSMs for COST Action 15221 is available in greater detail in the Final Action Dissemination and as a shorter stand-alone document here.

Previous STSM recipients have captured the STSM experience in their reflections and reports here:
