What is a STSM?

 Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) consists in a visit to a host organization located in a different country than the country of affiliation by a Researcher or Innovator for specific work to be carried out and for a determined period of time (e.g. participation to experiments, joint theoretical work, etc. …).

  • STSM Grantee: receives funding for implementing a project with an international team and gains new knowledge or access to equipment or techniques not available in the home institution.
  • STSM Host: receives an international partner in their institution and can develop long lasting collaboration.
