Great success of STSMs

posted Mar 25, 2014, 3:56 AM by Marco Zaccaria
Having reached over 40 completed or ongoing Short Term Scientific Missions (i.e. on average more than ten STSMs per year!), STSMs have become one of the most powerful tools of this Action to improve direct cooperation between COST Action members of different Member States. In particular Early Stage Researchers (ESR; mostly PhD students) had a benefit from STSMs, as in about 90% of the approved STSMs the visitor was ESR.
