European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST)

Contact at the FNR: Dr Carlo Duprel
COST is a European cooperation measure in the field of scientific and technical research. COST does not fund research itself but provides a platform for European scientists to cooperate on a particular project and exchange expertise. These projects are called "Actions". COST financing is restricted to coordination expenses (meetings between teams, publication expenses, short travel assignments of young researchers, etc.); the cost of the research itself is borne by each country under national programmes.
The initiative of launching a COST Action comes from the European researchers themselves. Researchers who wish to launch a new Action submit a proposal to the continuous COST Open Call for Proposals. Projects presented at the initiative of researchers involve between five and 25 countries (15 on average).
If you wish to participate in an ongoing COST Action
please complete the following form and send it to Dr. Carlo Duprel (FNR).
You will then be nominated to the COST Action and from then you will have the full rights to participate in the Action meetings.
