COST: Europe's most empowering research programme Strengthening science and innovation through research networking

Project description

A boost for open networking tool in the ERA

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is an intergovernmental framework for funding research and innovation networks. The networks, called COST Actions, provide an open space for collaboration amongst researchers and innovators to grow their ideas in any science and technology field by sharing them with their peers. As bottom-up, interdisciplinary networks with a duration of four years, COST Actions boost research, innovation and careers. COST funding intends to complement national research funds, as they are exclusively dedicated to cover collaboration activities, including workshops, conferences, working group meetings, training schools, short-term scientific missions, and dissemination and communication activities. Since 1971, COST has received EU funding under the various Research and Innovation Framework Programmes, including Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe.
