What is COST?

COST Actions consist of basic and pre-competitive research for peaceful purposes as well as activities of public utility. Scientists themselves propose new Actions making COST an attractive forum for new and emerging topics.

COST does not fund research itself but provides a platform for European scientists to cooperate on a particular project and exchange expertise. These projects are called "Actions".
