INTERFASOL Short Term Scientific Missions were a great success: 34 researchers from 17 countries took part in STSMs


The INTERFASOL COST Action organized 4 STSM calls. 34 researchers from 17 countries took part to the experience after a selective process. 14 countries were host countries. Among them UK received the major number of researchers (=5), followed by Luxembourg (=4), Netherland, Spain and Portugal (=3). Some discrepancies in the sending-receiving ratio have been registered: some Countries – like UK and Luxembourg – were more receiving than sending. No UK PhD student or researcher was a participant in the STSM. Overall, there has been a good levels of exchange across INTERFASOL Cost Countries: among 28 Countries 21 sent or received at least one student or researcher. We registered a good participation from Eastern Countries (at least one participant from Bosnia Erzegovina, Croatia, Estonia, Georgia, Poland). Mean duration of the mission was three weeks (range one week- eight week). The STMS gave the opportunity to participants to produce publications or to participate to conferences.

From 2014 till 2017 STSMs were coordinated by Prof Dr Dieter Ferring (†2017) University of Luxembourg
In 2017-18 STSMs were coordinated by Prof. Camillo Regalia, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan, who prepared this overview of STSMs activities.
