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.

In WG3 we are looking for participants for a benchmark hackathon for software solutions that process close-range point clouds from forests. It will take place on 25-29 September, 2023, at TU Wien (Austria). One of the main aims of WG3 is to compile and evaluate algorithms and software that is relevant for 3DForEcoTech. We have...

We are currently looking for a person to lead the preparation of newsletters for the 3DForEcoTech COST Action (four per year).

Technologies-Biodiversity-Modelling Aim & ObjectivesThe increasing rates of changes in environmental conditions put higher pressure on science to provide robust estimates of future ecosystem development. We need robust approaches to measure the current state, understand the processes and then accurately predict the development of forest ecosystems. In this view, the members of three COST Actions (3DForEcoTech,...
