On the 4th of June the COST Programme approved 40 new actions in various fields of science that can constitute a valuable tool for networking researchers in the Eastern Partnership countries with their EU counterparts.

More than half of the 40 network proposals cover at least two OECD (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) fields of science and technology, while 5% cover at least three fields.

Natural sciences lead the way as the most represented field of science (53% of the actions), followed by engineering and technology (30%), social sciences (28%), agricultural sciences (20%), medical and health sciences (18%) and humanities (10%).

For researchers from the EaP countries, it is important to note that
