Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM)

DES Solve Research group is welcoming researchers from abroad and supporting their application for the Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) within COST action GREENERING. This action has the possibility to fund several STSMs. These are short term missions of scientific character up to about one month, funded up to about 3k€ (daily costs and traveling costs). The application is really easy, and it is allowed to exchange between uni-uni or industry-uni or uni-industry.
Applications are now open until 15th June 2021.
The STSM must start latest by 1st September 2021.

Integration of Undergraduate and Master students 

At Des.solve facilities, we have conditions to receive Undergraduate and Master students, where they can complete their studies and, simultaneously, enrich their scientific knowledge and laboratorial experience, in a great team environment.
