STSM

Short-Term Scientific Missions

The Cost Action BM1204 (EUPancreas) invites applications for Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSMs). These Missions (Inter-laboratory Exchange Visits) aim to strengthen the existing COST Actions by allowing scientists to go to an institution or laboratory in another COST country to foster collaboration, to learn a new technique or to take measurements using instruments and/or methods not available in their own institution/laboratory. They are particularly intended for Early Career Investigators (ECIs).

Duration of the STSM is 5 days minimum to 3 months maximum.
