COST – European Cooperation in Science and Technology is a funding organisation for research and innovation networks.
On 24 March 2020, COST’s governing board, the Committee of Senior Officials (CSO), confirmed the funding of 45 new COST Actions, which will start in the late Summer and Autumn of 2020.
The full Action details (Memorandum of Understanding) will be available on 21 April 2020 on the new Action webpages. Interested parties will then be able to see the Action’s objectives, foreseen activities, working groups and Main Proposer details, and possibly express an interest to contribute to the Action by contacting their relevant COST National Coordinator.
As an indicator of multi-disciplinarity of the new Actions, more than half of them cover at least two OECD (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) fields of science and technology, while 11% cover at least three fields.
