COST Action CA20111 EuroProofNet
Open call for Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

Dear Action members,

The next STSM deadline is:

  3 April 2022

Notification: 15 April. We are especially looking for applications from
women and working groups other than WG3.

*What is an STSM?*

A Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) is a research visit of an individual
researcher from a country participating in the Action in a different
country also participating in the Action. We encourage STSMs, as they are
an effective way of starting and maintaining collaborations.

The procedure for proposing an STSM is described in Annex 2 of the
Annotated Rules (

The main points about STSMs are:

* An STSM must be between two different countries which are participating
in the Action.
* The typical duration is one or two weeks. We favor short missions so that
more people can get funded.
* The financial contribution for an STSM is a fixed grant based on the
applicant’s budget request and the evaluation of the application by the
STSM assessment committee. The grant may not necessarily cover all costs of
the visit. The grant only covers travel and subsistence and is transferred
after the STSM has taken place.
* Recommended grants:
   - up to EUR 120 for daily allowance (depending on the location)
   - up to EUR 400 for travel.
   - the total may not exceed EUR 4000 (this is a hard limit)
* Proposals should be submitted by the deadlines.

*What documents to provide?*

Proposals must be made through the e-COST system (
