Short Term Scientific Missions

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening existing networks and fostering collaboration between researchers. STSMs within GroupHouseNet should contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action while at the same time allowing those partaking in the missions to learn new techniques, and gain access to data, instruments and methods not available at their institutions. 

The second call for STSM applications is now open! 

Missions will take place during late 2017 and/or early 2018. The deadline for applications in 15 August 2017. Details of the call, evaluation criteria, priority topics, and application procedure can be seen here. For more general information on STSMs, please contact the STSM coordinator (Dr. Bas Rodenburg, Wageningen University, The Netherlands,
