Each year two calls will be available.

Within each call the criterion for assessing application will be a comparative evaluation taking into account the documents available.

If the application is accepted by the STSM Committee, it will be forwarded to the COST Office. The applicant will receive an Official Acceptance Letter from the COST Office.


Submit your request on the online application and send it to and to the Host Institution.

Please refer to the general guidelines and rules for required documents.
