Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

Supporting and developing early stage researchers is central to the activities of The Collaboration of Aphasia Trialists. Previous programmes such as our Short Term Scientific Missions have provided opportunitIes for international research visits and collaborative work. 

We are no longer accepting STSM applications. 

Reports of previous STSMs are available to download here.

Zakarias"The STSM provided a unique opportunity for me to visit the Neurocognition of Language Group in Potsdam, Germany. During my stay, we discussed the most appropriate method of data analyses of a previously conducted case study in Hungary and exchanged ideas about future potential collaborative research. It is easy and smooth to apply for a STSM, with a fast decision procedure, allowing for visiting anybody working on aphasia in one of the participating COST countries. For me, it was a once in a lifetime experience."

Kleanthes Grohmann"This STSM was an extremely fruitful collaboration between the visiting Cyprus Acquisition Team and the hosting THALΕS-APHASIA group. The week-long mission was the perfect tool to set up a comprehensive aphasia assessment battery to be used in Cyprus and Greece alike. We are hopeful to soon be in a position to pilot and then start administering the new tool."
