Imagine a world without food waste. A world where all the food we throw away finds its way back into the cycle, turning into new food ingredients, green fertilizers, biofuels or even vaccines.
COST is a unique means for European researchers, engineers and scholars to jointly develop their own
ideas and new initiatives across all fields of science and
technology through trans-European networking of nationally funded research activities. read more
Pre-Announcement: The next Collection Date is anticipated to be 9 February 2016.
It is very important that early stage researchers get access to STSMs and Training Schools in a scale that is not provided by any other EC program. Scientists in the new EU member states, who are insufficiently involved in Horizon 2020 because of the lower competitiveness of their research units, get an opportunity through COST to be involved in the creative activities of Horizon 2020.
The COST Action I am a member of had a huge, unquestionable impact on the field of quantum thermodynamics. This field has been dormant for several decades and it was amazing to see how in a very short time a very active community formed due to the COST activities: the conferences, work meetings, and the short-term scientific missions. The COST Action and the interaction with other COST members have contributed significantly to my own research.
COST has been integral in creating new links/collaborations across Europe in fields different to my own. Moreover, through COST, we have been able to offer Masters and PhD students the opportunity to undertake internships in the UK with us. Such experiences are invaluable to them and to the networks that they create through the rest of their careers. COST creates and sustains a healthy collaborative research spirit across Europe.
COST proved a valuable resource for my colleagues and me, particularly for re-establishing the highly necessary academic networks between Balkans and rest of the Europe.
