COST Countries

COST is an intergovernmental framework consisting in 36 Member Countries and a Cooperating State. This allows researchers from these countries to embark upon networking opportunities by participating in science and technology networks called 'COST Actions'.

COST Member Countries

The 36 COST Member Countries are: Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

These countries govern COST via their representatives in the COST Committee of Senior Officials (CSO) - the General Assembly of the COST Association.

For detailed information on each COST Member Country and Cooperating State, please download the COST country fact sheets.

Cooperating State

Israel is a Cooperating State. A Cooperating State implies non-voting rights in the COST CSO. However, researchers from COST's Cooperating State enjoy member rights in COST Action participation.
