COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) funds ‘COST actions’ for a period of 4 years. The actions are interdisciplinary research networks that bring together researchers and innovators to investigate a topic of their choice.

Studies show that Danish researchers have benefited from attending COST actions. They have written and published articles with renowned researchers, achieved better scientific results, which have promoted their research careers. Danish researchers have also established contacts in their field of study, which has resulted in national and international research project applications.

Opportunities to join the newly announced COST actions will also be presented during the session.
70 new COST actions have just been announced, and are now open for applications. Researchers who are interested in becoming a Management Committee member in a network can submit their application to EuroCenter. Deadline for application is Monday 27 June 2022 at 12:00 p.m. (CET).
