COST networks for researchers

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is an organisation dedicated to connecting different scientific disciplines across Europe.

COST Actions are initiated on subjects proposed by researchers. They are especially designed to promote network-based cooperation between young researchers and new research teams in new fields of science and technology. For example, research communities have been able to use COST Actions to set up European consortia for Horizon 2020 projects. Although the actions are Europe-centric, the networks are open to research teams from anywhere in the world.

COST Actions are coordinated by representatives of the countries that have joined the organisation. The COST Office also helps with project management. Cooperation in connection with COST Actions is funded through the EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (Horizon Europe).

Now open: Open Call for new COST Actions – next collection date 25 October 2023 at 12.00 noon.
