From wearable robots to black holes: get to know the 25 COST networks that kicked off this spring
Throughout March and April, we hosted over 600 researchers and specialists from all over the continent, involved in 25 new networks. The 25 kick-offs were a chance for them to meet and set out their networks’ goals and priorities. The Actions will receive an estimated EUR 13 million for the usual timeframe of 4 years, helping them put their research networking activities into practice.
