Applying for a STSM during the Covid19 Pandemic
The application must describe how the activities proposed to take place during the STSM can be safely conducted according to current international health and safety recommendations. Considering this, we recommend that activities only involve few people (i.e., no large gatherings), and are to be conducted either outdoors or in indoor spaces that are large enough to enable social distancing. Please note that:
- The letter from the Host Organization must confirm that the Host Institution is able to accept visitors under their anti-Covid19 health and safety policy and it must specify that the proposed activities can safely take place on their premises and that social distancing rules and prevention measures are in place.
- The letter from the Home Institution must confirm that travel for its staff is allowed under their anti-Covid19 health and safety policy.
Both the Host and Home Institutions commit to update their endorsement closer to the travel date upon request.
