COST Action TD 1405 Enject invites researchers from participating COST Countries to submit applications for the 2nd call for Short-Term Scientific Missions(STSM) Applications for missions occurring between 1st May 2016 and 31st January 2017.
Purpose of a STSM
STSMs are aimed at strengthening existing networks and fostering collaborations by allowing Researchers participating in a given COST Action to visit an Institution / Organisation in another Participating COST country / an approved NNC institution or an approved IPC institution . A STSM should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action , whilst at the same time allowing those partaking in the missions to learn new techniques , gain access to specific data, instruments and / or methods not available in their own institutions / organisations.
