COST Action FP0902 published 3rd call for Short Term Scientific Missions


3rd Call for Short Term Scientific Missions

COST Action “Forest Energy” “Development and harmonisation of new operational research and assessment procedures for sustainable forest biomass supply”

Objectives of the Action:
The objective of the COST Action is to harmonize forest energy terminology and methodologies of forest operations research and biomass availability calculations thereby building the scientific capacity within forest energy research and supporting the technology transfer of the forest biomass procurement chain and sustainable forest management.

The work in the COST Action is focused around 4 Working Groups:
WG 1: Forest biomass terminology and units
WG 2: Operations research & measurement methodologies
WG 3: Machine cost calculation and data analysis methodologies
WG 4: System Analysis and modeling in forest operations

Objectives of the Short Term Scientific Mission:
The Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) should aim to support the overall objectives of the Action and the work carried out in one of the Working Groups. These Missions (exchange visits) are aimed at strengthening the existing networks by allowing scientists to go to an institution or laboratory in another COST Country to foster collaboration, to learn a new technique or to take measurements using instruments and/or methods not available in their own institution/laboratory. They are particularly intended but not limited to young scientists.
