COST Actions are science and technology networks open to researchers and stakeholders. They offer a wide range of networking tools, such as workshops, conferences, training schools, short-term scientific missions (STSMs) and dissemination activities. Short-term scientific missions (STSM) are exchange visits between researchers involved in a COST Action, allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another COST country. They are aimed at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants' institutions or laboratories. STSM are intended especially for young researchers.
A list of European photonics study programmes and curricula offered throughout Europe is provided on the Photonics21 website.
On the Euraxess homepageyou will find research job vacancies throughout Europe as well as practical information about administrative and legal issues when moving from one country to another.
