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!
Proposers are invited to locate their proposal in one of the nine scientific Domains.
Interdisciplinary proposals not fitting readily into a single Domain are also welcome under the form of Trans-Domain Proposals (TDPs). To find out more about the intended coverage of each of the 9 scientific Domains, please visit the COST website.
All proposals are assessed in two stages. Preliminary Proposals, consisting of a brief overview and an impact description (maximum 1500 words/3 pages), are checked for eligibility first and, when eligible, assessed by the relevant Domain Committee against the published criteria. The top ranked Preliminary Proposals are then invited to submit a Full Proposal which is peer reviewed according to the published assessment criteria. The time between the collection date and the proposal for approval of the best Full Proposals by the COST CSO is approximately 6 months. COST - European COoperation in Science and Technology - brings together researchers and experts in different countries by setting up networks (Actions) centred on nationally funded research projects, which are of interest to at least five COST countries. COST financially supports activities such as meetings, conferences, short-term scientific exchanges and outreach activities in the range of EUR 100 000 per annum for normally 4 years. COST therefore does not fund research itself.
Full information on the open call is available on http://www.cost.esf.org/opencall which also gives access to the online submission template.
