What are STSM?

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are institutional visits aimed at supporting researchers’ individual mobility as well as fostering collaboration between individuals. All STSM should contribute to the scientific objectives of the HyperChildNET COST Action, while enabling those partaking in the missions to establish new partnerships, learn new techniques, gain access to specific data, instruments and / or methods not available in their own institutions / organisations.
