COST Actions: Join newly established researcher networks

New COST networks within Medicine and Health were launched in June 2019. Norwegian researchers may apply to join them, contacting the Research Council of Norway preferably by 30 June 2019, but later applications are also possible.

What is COST?

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) provides exciting opportunities for cooperation and networking on an European level!

  • One of the longest-running European frameworks
  • Supports cooperation among scientists and researchers across Europe
  • Does not fund research itself, but provides funding for network activities
  • Researchers participating in an action, collaborate and contribute with their nationally funded research

About 40 new actions (networks) are funded every year.

The first year of a new action, researchers from countries that have not been included in the planning of the new action, can apply to participate.
