Five principles of COST Actions

  • flexible
  • bottom-up proposals
  • voluntary and selective participation
  • nationally funded (coordination contribution)
  • equal access of researchers
slide6

The nature of COST Actions

  • inherently international
  • beneficial to a number of countries
  • require harmonization of regulations and policy making
  • are of public concern
  • desirable newly emerging or multidisciplinary scientific topics
slide7

  • Food and Agriculture
  • Forests, their Products and Services
  • Materials, Physical and Nanosciences
  • Chemistry and Molecular Sciences and Technologies
  • Earth System Science and Environmental Management
