STSM Call grant period 3

The call is now open for Grant Period 3 applications for STSMs that address the aims of the CONVERGES programme: to establish a baseline in the state of knowledge regarding riparian vegetation across Europe, coordinate research efforts, foster new collaborations, share new techniques, contribute to knowledge conversion from science to practitioners and to COST Inclusiveness Target Countries, and to promote practitioners’ research interests in the scientific community.

We would particularly like to encourage applications from Early Career Investigators (i.e. An individual who is within a time span of up to 8 years from the date they obtained their PhD/doctorate) and those from EU Inclusiveness Target Countries.

STSM applications should be of short duration (between 5-90 days, or more for Early Career Investigators) and applicants can apply for a maximum of €2500 (or €3500 for Early Career Investigators). Applications are made online at COST.EU — an e-COST profile is required and can be created if needed.

The CONVERGES Grant Period 3 STSM call will close on 30 June 2019. All STSMs should be completed by 30 April 2020.
