Short-Term Scientific Missions (STMs) allow scientists to learn from an institute or other laboratory in another country - a concept of particular interest to young scientists and PhD students. Both STMS and Workshops provide opportunities for scientists belonging to our partner institutes to develop and harmonise skills and knowledge between partners to promote One-Health working. Increasing collaboration is important to make Europe more competitive. Exchanging ideas and knowledge across borders leads to more successful projects. In the future this will make markets stronger and put European scientists at the forefront of worldwide technological innovation.

Workshops and STMs help research and support integration and collaboration.
STMs can vary from a few days to a few weeks, while workshops generally last 1.5 to 5 days. Applicants must be an employee of, or be engaged in a research programme in an MVNA institute. 

In 2019 there was one call in March which has already ended. All applicants have received information about the outcome of their application. The next call is expected at the end of 2019/beginning of 2020.
