Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) are aimed at supporting individual mobility and at strengthening the existing networks and fostering collaborations by allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another Participating COST Country, in an approved Near Neighbour Country or an International Partner Country. It should contributes to the scientific objectives of the COST Action.

It allows the participants to foster collaboration and learn new techniques, access to specific instruments and methods not available in their own institution.
