COST - Maximising impact

Project description

Helping science and technology create space for innovation

European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) is a funding organisation for the creation of research networks, called COST Actions. These bottom-up highly interdisciplinary networks offer an open space for collaboration among scientists across Europe (and beyond) and thereby give impetus to research advancements and innovation. Researchers can create a network by submitting a proposal to the COST Open Call, in any science field. It is possible to join ongoing Actions, which therefore keep expanding over the funding period of four years. These activities are run by the COST Association, an international non-profit entity with membership of 38 countries. It is funded by the EC budget totalling EUR 300 million for the entire Horizon 2020 period.
