Short Term Scientific Missions 


STSMs are primarily intended for PhD students and Early Career Investigators (ECI)/young researchers to visit other research groups in order to acquire new expertise, to contribute their expertise to particular projects, and to exchange ideas within participating institutions in order to contribute to the final aims of the SPRINT Action. STSMs will help PhD students and early-stage researchers to develop contacts and collaborators. STSMs will be organized as short visits, typically of few weeks, but exceptionally of longer duration, between members.

The evaluation of STSM applications is performed by the STSM Committee and the STSM Coordinator and the Grant Holder will decide the STSM winners based on the grading score from the STSM Committee, how the proposal fits with the scopes of the SPRINT Action, and on available funds.
