What is COST?

COST is a European framework which aims at supporting trans-national cooperation among researchers, engineers and scholars across Europe.

COST Actions are addressed to researchers, engineers and scholars and include the following activities:

  • Participation in workshops, seminars and trainings,
  • Short term scientific visits in research organizations and institutions of one of the COST countries,
  • Dissemination activities and publishing scientific articles,
