COST Action CA15211 "Electronet" invites researchers from participating COST Countries to submit applications for the 3rd Call for Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSM). Applications for missions occurring between January 1st, 2018 and 30.4.2018.
Purpose of a STSM
STSM are aimed at strengthening existing networks and fostering collaborations by allowing Researchers participating in a given COST Action to visit an institution / Organization in another Participating COST Country / an approved NNC institution or an approved IPC institution. 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 / organizations. Please see the full call for STSM applications in the document attached to this Email.
Deadline for applications to be submitted: no later than [30/ November / 2017]
Notification of application outcome: before [31 / December / 2017]
Period of STSM: between [1 / January / 2018] and [30 / April / 2018]
STSM proposals should be at minimum, 2 and at maximum 4 pages long. They should be clear about the following components: (a) Overall context and objectives (theoretical background, citing relevant literature) (b) Novelty and originality of the proposed idea / work (c) Reason for choosing the host institute (d) Detailed work plan and (e) Potential outcomes and relevance to Electronet
All STSM activities must occur in their entirety within the period specified above.
