Type of Grant
COST Actions comprise a range of networking tools, including workshops, conferences, training schools, short-term scientific missions (STSMs), and dissemination activities.
With an aim of fostering collaboration, STSMs and ITC Conference Grants calls facilitate visits to be made by researchers to an institution or laboratory within the LEAD-ME network, along with providing support to Early Career Investigators (ECI) researchers from participating Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITC) to attend international science and technology related conferences.
Please find the list of LEAD-ME participants under GRANTEES.
Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM)
Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are aimed at strengthening existing networks and fostering collaboration by facilitating researchers and scholars participating in the Action to visit an institution in another Country.
A STSM should specifically contribute to the objectives of LEAD ME.
