COST fuding intends to complement national research funds, as they are exclusively dedicated to cover collaboration activities, such as workshops, conferences, working group meetings, training schools, short-term scientific missions, and dissemination and communication activities. For more information, please go to the calls for each grant and event.
The COST Association places emphasis on actively involving researchers from less research-intensive COST Countries (Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITCs)). Researchers from Near Neighbour Countries (NNCs) and International Partner Countries (IPCs) can also take part in COST Actions, based on mutual benefit.
