STSMs

Short Term Scientific Missions

STSMs are one of the most effective instruments in a COST Action. They help ESRs to collaborate with partnered institutions in jointed research and/or learning activities and are fundamental for knowledge sharing among different domains and institutions.

PEERE operates with an on-going open call for STSMs. Applications can be sent from 1 October 2014 to 1 April 2016 following the procedure below. Announcements of STSMs will be published in the Action website and regularly included in the PEERE newsletter.

The STSM coordinator for PEERE is Virginia Dignum (NL MC member, Technische Universiteit Delft, Netherlands, m.v.dignum@tudelft.nl).
