STINT is closely monitoring developments surrounding COVID-19. Our activities may have to be adapted according to circumstances, and any changes will be announced on this page as they are made.


Project extensions

STINT is receiving many requests to extend projects due to COVID-19. Extraordinary circumstances such as these constitute acceptable grounds for extending project periods. At present, it is difficult to know when international mobility can be resumed, depending on country. Our recommendation is therefore for PI:s only to request extensions for projects that are due to be concluded within about a month.

Please contact the appropriate Programme Manager at STINT for more information on applying for an extension.


Delayed project starts

STINT will allow recently funded projects to commence international exchange activities later than indicated in the calls for applications. This will be communicated when contracts are forwarded. Use the opportunity to plan future activities remotely, so that your project is ready to commence as soon as the travel situation improves.


Changes in calls for applications

At present, STINT has not decided to make any changes in calls for applications. Any changes will be published here on, both as news items and on the programme pages.
