Short Term Scientific Missions

Scientific Missions of ECIs, particularly to industrial partners, represent a crucial tool of the action to promote the setup of a substantial network among academic and commercial partners.

They are organized in yearly issued calls and provide a limited economic support to the granted ECIs.

The STSM program Manager is Iliyana Naydenova (e-mail: inaydenova@tu-sofia.bg).

The STSM program vice-manager is Giancarlo Sorrentino (email: g.sorrentino@unina.it)

Third year Short Term Scientific Mission call is now open

Those wanting to submit their application must send to the email address stsm@smartcats.eu a package containing:

  1. The personal details of the applicant, the details of the home and host institutions and the type and length of stay;
  2. A recent CV with a list of publications (if applicable);
  3. An up to two pages abstract explaining the purpose of the stay and what is to be accomplished;
  4. A detailed explanation of the relevance and contribution of the STSM to the Action aims;
  5. A letter from the host institution stating its agreement and support to the STSM.
