How to participate

One goal of our Cost-action is to encourage the transfer of knowledge through Summer Schools and Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSM).

There will be 4 Summer Schools, one for each working group, as well as several Short-Term Scientific Missions.

Short-Term Scientific Missions are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening existing networks and fostering collaboration between researchers.

A STSM should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the Action, whilst at the same time allowing those partaking in the missions to learn new techniques, gain access to specific data, instruments and/or methods not available in their own institutions and/or organisations.

If you are from one of the  countries that is participating in our Action, you can apply for a grant to carry out a STMS or participate in a Summer School once we have published our missions. You can check here whether your country has signed up to the Action.
