From July 1, 2014 IC1305 NESUS is open for receiving STSM applications. We plan to fund 15 STSMs over a period of one year. The maximum planned funding per STSM is €1500 provided that the visit is at least 15 days. It could be reduced if less. Please note that the financial support available via this scheme is a contribution to the travel and subsistence cost of a STSM and may not necessarily cover all the costs.
Funding will be allocated according to the following criteria:
- The Applicant should be engaged in a research programme as a post-graduate student, postdoctoral fellow or be employed in an institution in a NESUS member country.
- Each application has to be submitted together with an agreement from the host institution. The Applicants are responsible for obtaining the agreement PRIOR to submitting the application.
- The research subject of the STSM must be relevant for NESUS.
- The Applicant and its host must be from two different NESUS member countries.
- STSM funding is a contribution towards travel and subsistence costs, and cannot be used as a salary.
- The duration of a standard STSM should be minimum 5 working days and maximum 90 days.
- All STSMs need to be carried out within their entirety within a single grant period and within the Action’s lifetime.
- Geographical and gender balance issues will be taken into consideration.
- Applications from ESR will be favored. (ESR stands for ‘Early Stage Researchers’, i.e. researchers with PhDs + up to 8 years of research experience.)
The procedure concerning STSM is governed by the COST Vademecum, in particular, Chapter 6.
The on-line registration tool will issue a formal STSM application that has to be downloaded and sent by the Applicant electronically (via e-mail as an attachment) together with other necessary documents that the Applicant may regard as helpful in supporting the application during the evaluation process (such as CV, list of publications, motivation letter, detailed workplan, statement of how the proposed STSM contributes to the aims of the NESUS Action, letter of support from the home institute, etc.) to
– the contact person of the STSM Host institution and to
– the STSM coordinator, Dr. Maya Neytcheva (maya.neytcheva ‘at’ it.uu.se)
with the subject “IC1305 NESUS– STSM Application – <applicant’s name>”.
It is important to include a motivation letter stating how the STSM workplan is related to NESUS Action and the working group that is more closely related to the application proposal.
- After the STSM, applicants will have to produce a 2 pages report and a short text for the newsletter.
During the first year of the NESUS Action STSM applications will be received continuously, up to March 31, 2015.
NOTE: THE SHORT TERM SCIENTIFIC MISSION SHOULD FINISH BY May 31, 2015.
