Dear INNOGLY members and their colleagues/students,
The 2nd Call for the Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) within the 1st grant period of the INNOGLY Action is now open. The purpose of these STSMs can be very diverse – ranging from scientific visits to a collaborating laboratory (e.g., measuring data as part of a joint research project), training visits to learn a new technique (e.g., for PhD students, post-docs and early career investigators, technicians, engineers), coordination visits to a joint research partner to optimize and plan further experiments (e.g., benchmarking), up to testing and evaluating new instruments or developing new methods – until now 3 scientists have been awarded and many more are to come. Both academic and industrial labs can qualify to host STSMs, so industry-oriented STSMs are welcome as well.
The majority of INNOGLY STSM rules follow the general COST Vademecum (Section 8), and are presented on INNOGLY webpage (https://innogly.eu) with a minor modification. In order to allow as many STSMs as possible, we have implemented a Daily Allowances list that defines maximum daily allowance according to the EU Country Coefficient. However, it should be noted that STSM funding is only a contribution to the overall expenses incurred during the STSM and does not necessarily cover all associated expenses. Financial support is limited to cover travel, accommodation and meal expenses, but not the actual cost of experiments/instrument access; and is paid in the form of a fixed grant after the mission completion and submission of the scientific report.
The deadline for the 2nd Call is 20th November 2019 (you can apply even sooner) and missions should be carried out between December 2019 and March 2020. All details about proposal preparation and submission can be found within STSM subsection of our website.
