Short Term Scientific Missions

Funds were available for scientists to visit and collaborate with other researchers on STSMs. These trips  involved training or exchange of analytical expertise in areas related to marine trace element and isotope chemistry.

The final application round for STSMs in this COST Action has now passed.
