Open calls

Here you can find information about the Open Calls issued by G-BiKE. They might refer to Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs), ITC Conference Grants and Training Schools.

STSMs
 are individual grants for spending a short period of time, from 5 to 90 days, in someone else's lab/field station. Funding is provided for travel, board and lodging.

ITC Conference Grants
 are exclusively reserved for PhD students, PhD candidates, and Early Career Investigators with a primary affiliation in an institution located in an ITC participating in the Action. The applicant is required to give an oral/poster presentation whose topic falls in the scope of the Action and shall acknowledge COST.

Training Schools
 aim to facilitate capacity building on a topic relevant to the theme of the respective COST Action through the delivery of intensive training on a new or emerging subject.

Virtual Networking Tools Grants aim to introduce two new types of Grants to build capacity and spread the uptake of virtual collaboration across different research communities, in the form of a pilot scheme running until 31 October 2021.
