Short Term Scientific Missions
Short TermScientific 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 first call for STSM proposals had a deadline of 31 May 2016, and 5 applications were funded (see below).
