Short-term scientific missions

Short-term scientific missions (STSMs) are exchange visits between researchers involved in a COST Action, allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another COST Member state.

The Grantee receives a contribution for traveling, accommodation and subsistence expenses, implementation of the project, delivery of the report to the COST Action MC and overall effort, of max. 4,000€.

For more information, see the Annotated rules (among others, page 96).
