COST approves 60 new Actions


On 13 June 2024 the new COST Actions, including all Memorandum's of Understanding, will be available on the COST website

COST creates scientific networks and enables scientists to collaborate in a wide spectrum of activities in research and technology.

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".

Participation in COST projects is open to all scientists who have expertise in the field the project covers, whether they are doctoral students or more experienced researchers from both universities and the private sector.

  • In total, Iceland can have two representatives in the steering committee for each project. A request for nomination must be sent in the form of an application to Rannís.
  • Those who are interested can also register for working groups, and the person is then not an official representative of Iceland. Registration in a work group is not done through Rannís.

Each COST project lasts for four years and it is possible to become a participant in a COST project at any time during that period.
