Short-term scientific missions (STSMs)

Exchange visits between researchers involved in a COST Action, allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another COST Member state.

Open Call

To explore the development of eHealth solutions in Croatia and The Netherlands, the age-friendly environments policies in Bilbao or Brussels, adapted housing in Warsaw and Germany. To learn big and tiny data handling and AI in Greece, North Macedonia or Portugal or to examine the benefits of public health in Norway and Serbia. The working of an ecosystem in Romania or Slovenia. This can be a topic of your short scientific mission on behalf of NET4Age-Friendly.

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are institutional visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, fostering collaboration between individuals. STSMs shall have a minimum duration of 5 calendar days that includes travel. STSMs are financially supported by the Action with a fixed contribution of up to EUR160 per day up to a maximum of EUR3500 in total.

We are aware that the current situation with Covid-19 continues to make travel difficult for many of us. We therefore encourage all to carefully monitor the situation for travel and accommodation, as well as local/national recommendations, before and during the planning of their STSM. In this current situation it is recommended to plan a visit to a neighbouring country.

The call for applications remains open for the duration of the grant period (until end of Grant Period 1), however submitted applications will be evaluated and processed on the 15th of every month.
