Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

The COST Action has an ongoing open call for Short term scientific missions (STSMs).

The STSM grant gives support to researchers of participating COST countries (PhD student or later) for spending some time (at least one week) in a different lab in order to learn new techniques and methods and discuss mutual approaches.

We would like to particularly invite female ion trappers from all associated countries, ion trappers from the central and eastern European countries and early career ion trappers to make use of this tool. Useless to say, that if you are a female ion trapper from central or eastern Europe, the world is at your feet!

Please submit your scientific projects to or contact the STSM coordinator Lukas Klosowski.
