About Cost

COST funds pan-European, bottom-up networks of scientists and researchers across all science and technology fields. These networks, called 'COST Actions', promote international coordination of nationally-funded research.

COST does not fund research itself, but provides support for networking activities carried out within COST Actions. COST Actions are bottom-up  science and technology networks open to researchers and stakeholders , with a four-year duration and a minimum participation of five COST Countries .

COST Actions are active through a range of networking tools, such as meetings, workshops, conferences, training schools, short-term scientific missions and dissemination activities . COST Actions are open to researchers from universities, public and private research institutions, as well as to NGOs, industry and SMEs .

COST invites researchers throughout Europe to submit proposals for COST Actions through a continuous Open Call .

Remember you can participate in COST in two ways (i) by initiating a COST Action (ii) by joining an established COST  Action.
