Short-Term Scientific Missions

Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) consists of a visit to a host organization located in a different country than the country of affiliation by a Researcher or Innovator for the specific work to be carried out and for a determined period of time.

    Short-Term Scientific Missions benefit to:
  • STSM Grantee: receives funding for implementing a project with an international team and gains new knowledge or access to equipment or techniques not available in the home institution.
  • STSM Host: receives an international partner in their institution and can develop long lasting collaboration.

Note that STSM grants do not necessarily cover all expenses related to undertaking a given STSM mission. These grants are contributions to the overall travel, accommodation and meal expenses of the grantee

Who can apply

STSM applicants must be MultIChem participants from a COST Full/Cooperating Member Country, Near-Neighboring Country or a European RTD organisation. Applicants must be engaged in an official research programme as a PhD Student or postdoctoral fellow or can be employed by, or affiliated to, an institution, organisation or legal entity which has a clear association with performing research.

The institution, organisation or legal entity where applicants pursue their main strand of research is considered as Home institution. The Host institution is the institution / organisation that will host the successful applicant.

A STSM should specifically contribute to the MultIChem objectives.

See the detailed guidelines on the STSM grant application.
