Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

WISE-ACT > STSM

A Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) is a unique COST tool offering the opportunity to conduct Action related research activities at a participating host institution. Specific aims and objectives are outlined in each WISE-ACT STSM Call. All STSM Calls are aligned with the Action tasks as listed in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). It is particularly useful for capacity building of Early Career Investigators (ECI) and those from Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITC).

Please check the Action website regularly for our open STSM Calls and the latest needs and requirements of our Action. Updates are also circulated through @WISEACT2050.
