STSMs, Conference Grants, and Virtual Mobility Grants

Over the course of the Action, many research and dissemination activities were supported using the following COST mechanisms:

1. Research visits between members of up to a few months' duration were via 62 Short-Term Scientific Mission (STSM) Grants.

2. Action members could present their results at high-level conferences, either in person or online, with the award of 8 Dissemination Conference Grants and 6 ITC Conference Grants (the latter for Young Researchers based in one of a selected list of countries).

3. Online collaboration between Action members was supported by 28 Virtual Mobility Grants.

VIRTUAL MOBILITY (VM) GRANTS

This is a new program, implemented by the COST Association in 2021, to build capacity and spread the uptake of virtual collaboration across different research communities.

These grants aim at strengthening the existing networks by allowing scientists to foster collaboration in a virtual setting, to exchange knowledge, learn new techniques, and disseminate the Action results. As with all grants, applications must be submitted using the e-COST platform, and instructions can be found in the User's Guide of the COST Association.

Please direct any enquiries to the Grant Awarding Coordinator, James Kennedy.
