Please note that with the new regulations there are no fixed amounts for STSM and the board can approve the grant with a lower amount than requested. If you know already that you would like to participate in an STSM you can also apply now (this helps our planning, but results will be published in late June).

The mission has to show how it can contribute to the scientific scope of the Action and how it can enrich INDCOR’s overall research goals. In addition, it has a special focus on Early Career Researchers (they can stay longer) and emphasizes geographical inclusiveness.

When applying please include into your proposal:
–> What is the goal of your STSM visit: Novel networking opportunities or deepening previous research relationships in order to create new projects
–> How does the STSM profit the applicant?
–> How can the goal realistically be achieved in the given time frame?
–>How is the STSM visit useful for the INDCOR community?


It is highly suggested that the output of an STSM is a (possibly open access) scientific publication.

Some institutions might not be able to issue letters of invite. Please note we cannot take into consideration those applicants’ proposal who cannot provide on request a letter of invitation issued by the host institution.
