Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) - Aims & Scope

The Collaboration of Aphasia Trialists (CATs) aims to facilitate interdisciplinary, synergistic research activities which in turn will encourage international research co-operation and projects.

As an integral part of the funding award to the Collaboration, we invite applications for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM). These are aimed at supporting individual mobility, strengthening the existing networks and fostering collaborations by allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another Participating COST Country or an approved Near Neighbour Country (NNC) institution or an approved International Partner Country (IPC) institution.

These grants are open to researchers with an interest in aphasia following stroke seeking to undertake a STSM which is in keeping with the objectives of our COST Collaboration.
