Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM)
Support capacity building and transfer of knowledge through bilateral/multilateral collaborations;
Support specific/general topic that can help achieve the Action MoU objectives and deliverables (research coordination);
Are very flexible and inclusive networking activities crucial to establish new collaborations or reinforce existing collaborations across disciplines and different sectors (e.g., academia and industry / SMEs) with possible impact on career development;
Typical outcomes are spin-off publications and (funded) projects that contribute to the visibility and impact of the COST Actions, encouraging other researchers to join.
