Calls for Applications
Short-term scientific missions (STSM)
ETHMIGSURVEYDATA has an open call for applications for its Year 2 (1/5/2018-30/4/2019) short-term scientific missions (STSM). The next batch of applications will be reviewed on 31 January 2019, though applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until 15 March 2019. To be considered for these STSM opportunities, please consult the call for applications: CA16111 – Y2 CALL STSM (01.2019). More information about the STSMs and the application process can be found below and in the call for applications.
Short-term scientific missions (STSM) are research stays for researchers involved in our COST Action, allowing them to visit an institution in another COST Member state.
These research visits can last anywhere from 5-90 days, and up to 180 days for Early Career Investigators (ECIs)— researchers within 8 years of obtaining their PhD. The aims of our STSMs are to foster collaboration and knowledge-sharing among researchers working on EMMs’ integration and/or survey data and to support the Action in achieving its goals and objectives.
For Year 2, the STSMs are primarily aimed at assisting Work Groups (WGs) in completing specific tasks. STSMs may also assist researchers in this COST Action to jointly prepare applications for funding, undertake joint empirical research, or to collaborate on substantive research. Applications explicitly aimed at contributing to achieve the COST Action’s Year 2 goals will be given priority. Proposals with alternative goals and that do not relate to EMMs and survey data will not be considered.
STSM participants are eligible to receive a grant, which can be used to assist with travel, accommodation and meal costs. The grant amount is set in line with guidelines set by the COST Vademecum.
To be considered for an STSM, an applicant must follow specific guidelines outlined in our Calls for Applications.
ITC Conference Grants
ETHMIGSURVEYDATA has an open call for applications for its Year 2 (1/5/2018-30/4/2019) ITC (Inclusiveness Target Country) Conference Grants. The next batch of applications will be reviewed on 31 January 2019, though applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until 15 March 2019. To be considered for this funding opportunity, please consult the call for applications: CA16111 – Y2 CALL CONFERENCE GRANTS (01.2019). More information about the ITC Conference Grants and the application process can be found below and in the call for applications.
ETHMIGSURVEYDATA’s ITC Conference Grants are aimed at supporting PhD students or Early Career Investigators (ECIs)—researchers who are within 8 years of completion of their PhD— from participating ITCs to attend international science and technology-related conferences, including those not specifically organised by the COST Action.
Participating ITCs are: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Republic of Serbia.
These Conference Grants are exclusively reserved for PhD students and ECIs with a primary affiliation in an institution located in an ITC that participates in this COST Action. The applicant must deliver an oral/poster presentation at the conference in question and must be listed in the official conference programme. The main subject of the oral presentation/poster presentation/speech at the approved conference must be on the topic of this COST Action, and hence must mobilise survey data on EMMs’ integration and be in line with the goals of the Action stated in its Memorandum of Understanding.
Although attendance at European conferences is preferred, conferences held elsewhere can also be considered. Additionally, the conference should be organised by a reputable academic or international organisation.
To be considered for an ITC COnference Grant, an applicant must follow specific guidelines outlined in our Calls for Applications.
