Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) call

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) call

There is a short term scientific mission call at

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, whilst at the same time allowing those partaking in the missions to learn new techniques, gain access to specific data, instruments and / or methods not available in their own institutions / organisations.

STSMs are particularly intended for 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 OpenMultiMed. Periods of career leave have to be added to this time span.

This call is open until June 30th (more will follow) and grants are made available from the COST project Open Multiscale Systems Medicine OpenMultiMed.

COST ( is the longest-running European framework supporting trans-national cooperation among researchers, engineers and scholars across Europe. COST Action CA15120 Open Multiscale Systems Medicine OpenMultiMed ( and aims at gathering a critical mass of international researchers and coordinating them as a team that develops and evaluates a transdisciplinary framework for multiscale systems medicine, consisting of novel concepts, methodologies and technologies.
