COST Action IS1301 invites Researchers from Participating COST Countries to submit applications for the 6th call for Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSM) Applications for missions occurring between 15 January 2017 and 30 April 2017. In January, we will send out a new call for the final grant period 1 May 2017-15 September 2017.

STSM are aimed at strengthening existing networks and fostering collaborations by allowing Researchers participating in a given COST Action to visit an institution / Organisation in another Participating COST Country / an approved NNC institution or an approved IPC institution. 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.

Please see the full call and guidelines for STSM applications in the document attached to this Email.
Deadline for applications to be submitted: 1 December 2016

All STSM activities must occur in their entirety within the period specified above.

Joost Robbe and Suzan Folkerts, STSM coordinators
