Opportunities for Short Term Scientific Missions

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) are funding opportunities awarded by COST Actions allowing researchers to conduct a limited study period in a research institution abroad. A series of limitations apply to eligibility. There is still funding available for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) for the year 2014/2015 with the COST Action Smart Energy Regions. Since a STSM cannot take place “across” two financial years, it is necessary to allocate the remaining STSMs for this year before the end of March 2015.

If you are interested in conducting a STSM within this financial year, please apply through the eCOST portal before March 13th. The link to start the application on eCOST  and information about the STSM procedure and requirements can be found in chapter 7 of this COST guidance:
