Short-term scientific missions (STSM) are exchange visits between researchers involved in a COST Action, allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another COST country. They are aimed at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants’ institutions or laboratories. STSM are intended especially for young researchers.
Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening existing networks and fostering collaboration between researchers. A STSM should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action, allowing researchers to learn new techniques, gain access to specific data, instruments and / or methods not available in their own institutions / organisations.
STSMs are particularly (but not exclusively) intended younger researchers: PhD students and Early Career Investigators (ECIs), i.e. a researcher whose career spun less than 8 years between the date of the PhD/doctorate (or similar experience) and the date of involvement in ML4Microbiome. Periods of career leave have to be added to this time span.
