Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSM)


About STSMs

Short-term scientific missions (STSM) are exchange visits between researchers involved in a COST action, allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another COST country. They are aimed at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants' institutions or laboratories. STSM are intended especially for young researchers.
