To apply for a STSM project, please send the following documents to the STSM Coordinator (Dr Monika Kałużna, firstname.lastname@example.org) and to the Chair (Dr Ralf Koebnik, email@example.com):
- Letter of motivation, including a statement that your institute will support your application,
- Curriculum vitae, incl. list of most relevant publications and other outputs (max. 3 pages).
Considering the COVID-19 pandemic and its unpredictable dynamics we will try our best to meet all expectations and we will be very flexible with respect to the schedule of the STSMs. However, since this COST Action will end at March 15, 2021, all STSMs need to end before February 7, 2021.
