Call for proposals for European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST)
The European Commission has published a call for proposals for European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST).
Developing stronger links amongst European researchers is crucial to building the European Research Area (ERA). European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) stimulates new, innovative, interdisciplinary and broad research networks in Europe. COST activities are carried out by research teams to strengthen the foundations for building scientific excellence in Europe.
COST is organised in nine broad domains:
- biomedicine and molecular biosciences;
- chemistry, molecular sciences and technologies;
- earth system science and environmental management;
- food and agriculture;
- forests, their products and services;
- individuals, societies, cultures and health;
- information and communication technologies;
- materials, physics and nanosciences;
- transport and urban development.
COST does not fund research itself, but supports networking activities such as meetings, conferences, short-term scientific exchanges and outreach activities. Currently around 250 scientific networks are supported.
