STSM - Process

 

1. Before the STSM

In order to receive a STSM grant, the applicant must:

  • Obtain the written agreement of the host institution, before submitting an application;

  •  Complete the online application form (see https://e-services.cost.eu/stsm);

  •  Send the completed file as e-mail attachment together with the necessary supporting documents (CV, full work plan, list of publications, motivation letter, letter of support from the home institution etc.) to the STSM host institution and to the MC Chair or the STSM coordinator.

Assessment and Grant Letter:

The MC (or STSM Coordinator or Committee) will perform the scientific and budgetaryassessment of the applications considering the Action objectives and define an acceptable funding level;

Once approved by the MC (or STSM Coordinator or Committee), the Grant Holder needs to receive the approval and then send a grant letter generated from e-COST to the applicant.

 

2. After the STSM

The grantee is required to submit a short scientific report to the host institution (for information) and MC Chair (or to the STSM coordinator) for approval within 30 days after the end date of the STSM containing:

  • Purpose of the STSM;

  • Description of the work carried out during the STSM;

  • Description of the main results obtained;

  • Future collaboration with the host institution (if applicable);

  • Foreseen publications/articles resulting from the STSM (if applicable);

  • Confirmation by the host institution of the successful execution of the STSM;

  •  Other comments (if any).

The failure to submit the scientific report within 30 days will effectively cancel the grant; The MC Chair (or the STSM coordinator) is responsible for approving the scientific report and informing the Grant Holder that the STSM has been successfully accomplished;

After receipt of the approval by email, the Grant Holder will execute the payment of the grant.
