What are DE-PASS Short-Term Scientific Missions and Virtual Mobility Grants?

COST Actions such as DEPASS offer grants to members to support researcher and innovator mobility, capacity building and transfer of knowledge through bilateral/multilateral collaborations.

Two specific grants exist: 1) Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSMs, Max €4000) and 2) Virtual Mobility (VM, Max €1500):

The grants support the achievement of tasks that can help progress the DE-PASS Action, Work Group and Deliverable objectives. The grants are very flexible and the schedule to complete the required tasks can be determined and agreed with the grantee – however all tasks for this year must be completed by 31st October 2023.
