OPEN CALL European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST)
COST brings together researchers and experts in different countries working on specific topics. COST does NOT fund research itself, but supports networking activities such as meetings, conferences, short-term scientific exchanges and outreach activities.
COST invites proposals for actions contributing to the scientific, technological, economic, cultural or societal development of Europe. Proposals playing a precursor role for other European programmes and/or initiated by early-stage researchers are especially welcome.
COST is organised in nine broad domains (biomedicine and molecular biosciences; chemistry and molecular sciences and technologies; Earth system science and environmental management; food and agriculture; forests, their products and services; individuals, societies, cultures and health; information and communication technologies; materials, physics and nanosciences; transport and urban development).
Proposals should include researchers from a minimum of five COST countries. Financial support for an action of 19 participating countries is in the range of EUR 130 000 p.a., normally for four years, subject to available budget.
Deadline for submissions in one of the nine COST Domains: 27 September 2013 at 17:00 Brussels time (GMT+1)
