On behalf of the Working Group 4 of COST Action TD 1407, we invite applications for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM).
NOTICE -COST Action TD 1407 aims s to create a network of scientists working and interested on Technology-Critical Elements - TCEs*, from an environmental perspective to potential human health threats, with the aim of defining the current state of knowledge and gaps, proposing priority research lines/activities, and acting as a platform for new collaborations and joint research projects.

The Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) are exchange visits aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening existing networks and fostering collaboration between researchers. The STSM should specifically contribute to the scientific objectives of COST Action TD 1407, while at the same time allowing applicants to learn new techniques or gain access to specific data, instruments and / or methods not available in their own institutions / organisations. 

For more information on elegibility, duration of STSMs, application procedure and financial support, visit: 
The deadline for applications will be on April 15th, 2016
