STMS and VMG icon STMS and VMG


Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening existing networks, and fostering collaboration between COST Action participants. Virtual Mobility Grants (VMG) consist of collaborations in a virtual setting among researchers or innovators within the COST Action to exchange knowledge. STSM and VMG should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST 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/ organizations.

The STSM and VMG conducted so far in PERIAMAR are:
