STSMs aim to strengthen scientific networks and collaborations, increase knowledge exchange through access to specific expertise or methods, and especially support junior researchers in their professional development. They relate to the five Working Groups of CHERN. To find out more, please refer to:
Rapid STSMs are short duration research visits to establish or deepen research collaboration between the STSM applicant and the host. They typically take place during several research-intensive days at the host institution (max. duration 5 days). Read the full call for more details and instructions how to apply!
accepted on a rolling basis
As an STSM host, you can host a scholar with whom you will be able to upgrade or expand your research, work on the scientific outputs or collaborate on joint funding application etc., and the grantee will be reimbursed according to the COST rules. The STSM can last from 5 calendar days to 2 months.
IMPORTANT: Priority will be given to first-time applicants, although there are no barriers for previous hosts to apply again.
