What are Short Term Missions?

Short Term Missions (STMs) are small travel grants with the aim of sharing scientific expertise, methodologies, equipment and facilities to harmonise the existing approaches and methodologies within the large OHEJP network, and to drive the research forward in a collaborative and non-duplicative fashion to strengthen both the scientific capacity within the OHEJP and also future prevention, preparedness, detection and response of the EU to foodborne and other emerging threats across human-animal-environmental sectors. The OHEJP funding of STMs for every year of the Programme commenced in 2019.


  • STMS can take place at any external institute to that of the applicant.
  • STMs implemented in one of the OHEJP member institutes to have priority over other application for STMs outside the OHEJP
  • However, applications that propose to bring in scientific tools or expertise in key areas beyond those available at OHEJP institutes are welcomed.
