Short Term Scientific Mission (05/2023)

Working group 5 – Forest Ecology

Open call for Project Proposals, Evaluation of proposals starts on: 23rd May, 2023

The call will remain open until all funds are allocated, but we will start to evaluate proposals on 23rd May 2023, so please submit soon! 

STSM Grants fund visits by:

  • The PhD Student or
  • Postdoctoral fellow or
  • Someone else, employed by an instutition, organization of legal entity which has within its remit a clear association with performing research
  • Max. 4500 € per person (per STSM)
  • STSMs visit lasting approx. 1-3 months and should end until the end of September
  • 4-5 STSMs in 2023
Do you have an idea for a project on the use of 3D close range technologies for forest ecology and would like to host a visitor to help you with the work?
We would like to hear from you!

Please send us 300- 400 words outlining the project and data available, anticipated outputs, the timeframe of the STSM, and your (short) CV or website. If you have a visitor in mind please send us their CV too; if not we will advertise selected projects across the COST action.

We want to fund projects clearly focussing on addressing ecological questions, they should be feasible within the timeframe proposed, and participants should commit to supporting the visitor during and after the STSM to achieve the outputs.

Working group 4 and 5 Precision Forestry and Forest Ecology Open call for Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSM). We want to fund a set of STSM projects focussed on topics around 3D close range technologies for either Precision Forestry (WP4) or Forest Ecology (WP5). Successful projects must clearly focus on addressing questions within precision forestry or...

We are thrilled to announce an exciting new research initiative within the framework of 3DForEcoTech COST Action, focusing on the transformative potential of Close-range Remote Sensing (CRRS) technology for ecosystem studies. 3DForEcoTech is a collaborative effort bringing together researchers, industry professionals, and enthusiasts in the field of Close-range Remote Sensing. Our mission is to explore,...

Dear 3DForEcoTech community, it is already two years since we started the 3DForEcoTech COST Action project. I already see the huge impact these years have had on me and on many others. When we were writing the project proposal, I had in my mind that the goal should be to create a strong enough motion...
