Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) are aimed at supporting individual mobility, at strengthening existing networks, and at fostering collaborations by allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another country.
Training Schools aim to facilitate capacity building through the delivery of intensive training on a new or emerging topic. Training schools are typically, although not exclusively, considered to be for the benefit of Early Career Investigators and PhD students.
EUGAIN supports the organization of different types of events by its members, such as meetings, workshops, and conferences for the purpose of disseminating the COST Action’s objectives and activities.
One of the priorities of a COST Action is to enhance research collaboration where ideas and people can grow without borders, through Conference Grants. These help PhD students and early-career investigators to attend international science and technology-related conferences in various fields.
