The third call for “Short Term Scientific Missions” (STSMs) is out. After a great response with many exciting projects I’m looking forward to the next applicants. And (of course) I’m hoping for many Interactive Art&Music projects and especially Mobile Sound projects…
The explanations on the website might make it sound more complicated than it actually is – basically it’s up to 2500 Euro for research visits for postgraduate students/young researchers. The deadline is June 1st 08 and the trip should be made before the end of 08.
From the website:
Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are aimed at strengthening the existing networks by allowing scientists to go to an institution or laboratory in another COST member state to foster collaboration, to learn a new technique or to take measurements using instruments and/or methods not available in their own institution/laboratory. They are particularly (yet not exclusively) intended for young scientists (especially PhD students). STSMs may also be used to reimburse the travel and accomodation expenses of students attending eNTERFACE’08 at LIMSI (Paris-Orsay, Aug. 4-29, 2008) for the development of one of the SID-related projects.
