COST723 Data Exploitation and Modeling for the Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere esflogo

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

These missions (exchange visits) are aimed at strengthening the existing networks by allowing scientists to go to an institution or laboratory in another COST country to foster collaboration, to learn a new technique, or to make measurements using instruments and/or methods not available in their own institution/laboratory. They are particularly intended for young scientists.

The duration of an STSM can be between 5 days and 3 months, with a COST financial contribution of up to 2500 Euro per mission. The STSMs are normally limited to institutions within the COST 723 member countries.

How to Apply

  • Read the document STSM_online_guide.pdf to learn about the details. It also describes the application procedure step by step.
  • After having read the guide, please go to to create the registration form, as described in the guide.
  • The addresses you should send the application to are:
    • Stefan Buehler <sbuehler at>,
    • William Lahoz <swslahoz at>,
    • Bernard Legras <Bernard.Legras at>,
    • Pavol Nejedlik <pnejedlik at>,
    • and your STSM host.
  • The COST 723 STSM committee usually decided within a few days. Nevertheless, make sure that your application is early enough, because the money for you has to be blocked by the COST office in Brussels, which takes about a month. To be on the safe side you should therefore apply at least 6 weeks before you want to travel.
