Funding supports networking activities, such as meetings, short-term scientific missions, training schools and dissemination activities in the areas of science and technology.

COST encourages and fosters trans-, multi- and interdisciplinary approaches by integrating researchers, engineers and scholars from different fields and horizons such as universities, research centres, companies, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as other relevant actors.

Projects must include researchers from at least five COST member countries.

Selected proposals receive financial support in the range of €130,000 per year, normally for four years, subject to available budget.

You can submit your COST Action proposal at any time throughout the year via the new e-COST online submission tool. The fall 2015 Collection Date is planned for 8 September 2015. This call is repeated two times a year.
