As part of the MOBILISE Cost Action CA17106, to foster mobility of data, policies and expertise in scientific collections and under the framework of the DiSSCo research infrastructure, a first call for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) has been launched.

The Call addresses early caries scientists, collection and data managers, collection curators and stewards from smaller institutions and institutions in countries that do not have extensive facilities and well-developed policies for data mobilisation, digitisation of biodiversity collections, data practices and curation. The final aim is to allow grant recipients to visit institutions from where they can draw such experience and bring it back to their institutions and their collections.
