2017 | Action Number: BM1205

International Training School - Beyond Conventional Tissue Imaging

  • Time: 05:01

The final meeting of COST Action BM1205 was organised at the Department of Physics of the University of Bari (Italy). Over the past 4 years, the network involved 28 countries, Israel and Australia. The network allowed over one hundred scientists and young researchers to move around the world, giving them the chance to meet and work with new teams in different laboratories. This event became increasingly interesting, having started as a small initiative for about 20 students. It gradually grew into a proper multi-event involving more than 60 students, 15 of them coming from all over Europe. Some of them explained why the conference was so important for their career.

European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) - what's in it for researchers?

  • Time: 07:24

The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) has been a building block of Europe's research for 45 years. It funds research networks across borders and spanning all scientific disciplines.

Because science is all about people, COST creates spaces where people are empowered and ideas can grow without limits. It connects people in high-quality networks that deliver value for money and opportunities to excel. This is a flexible and open approach focused on cooperation, which creates a unique dynamic. It creates a fertile ground for science to flourish.

Academia, industry, public and private sector laboratories work together in networks, sharing knowledge, leveraging diversity and pooling resources.

COST is now more relevant than ever. It is the perfect example of how governments can make a real difference, ensuring that cooperation optimises national investment in research and technology and unlocks the full potential of science.

2015 | Action Number: TU1404

COST Action TU1404 - Towards the next generation of standards for service life of cement-based materials and structures

  • Time: 02:47

Cement-based materials (CBM) are the foremost construction materials worldwide. Therefore, there are widely accepted standards for their structural applications. However, for service life designs, current approaches largely depend on CBM strength class and restrictions on CBM constituents. Consequently, the service life behaviour of CBM structures is still analysed with insufficiently rigorous approaches that are based on outdated scientific knowledge, particularly regarding the cumulative behaviour since early ages. This results in partial client satisfaction at the completion stage, increased maintenance/repair costs from early ages, and reduced service life of structures, with consequential economic/sustainability impacts. Despite significant research advances that have been achieved in the last decade in testing and simulation of CBM and thereby predicting their service life performance, there have been no generalized European-funded Actions to assure their incorporation in standards available to designers/contractors. Therefore, the main purpose of this Action is to bring together relevant stakeholders (experimental and numerical researchers, standardization offices, manufacturers, designers, contractors, owners and authorities) in order to accelerate knowledge transfer in the form of new guidelines/recommendations, introduce new products and technologies to the market, and promote international and inter-speciality exchange of new information, creating avenues for new developments.

Quantitative Wood Anatomy: From Sample to Data for Environmental Research

Quantitative wood anatomy investigates relationships between plant growth, functioning and environment, and typically also how these relationships change over time. It is a challenging multi-step approach, in which deficiencies in one step propagate to the following steps with negative consequences for data quality. This film gives and overview of how to quantify anatomical features in digital images, presents guidelines and pitfalls, and introduces different anatomical metrics used for environmental research. This is the third COST-STReESS instruction film, launched by the Dendroclimatology group, Swiss Federal Institute of Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL (Switzerland) in cooperation with the Department of Land, Environment, Agriculture and Forestry (TESAF), University of Padova (Italy), the Department of Wood Science and Technology, University of Ljubliana (Slovenia), and the Forest Ecology and Forest Management Group, Wageningen University (Netherlands). The script for this film was written by Georg von Arx (Dendroclimatology group, Swiss Federal Institute of Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL). The film is produced by Hans Reijnen of R Media in association with the COST Action STReESS

The Importance of Social Science Research for Understanding Climate Change Induced Migration

  • Time: 05:29
  • Copyright: IISD Reporting Services / Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB)

In the context of today’s migration crisis, researchers involved in COST Action “Climate Change and Migration” presented their findings at a side event organized as part of the COP21 event in Paris. The event explored the importance of social science research for understanding climate change-induced migration. Having worked with international peers from social sciences, humanities, legal and policy studies, network member Dr Angela Oels stressed there was “no simple link between climate change and migration”. The network argued that although climate change affects vulnerable populations, it is not the only factor causing migration. Challenging the concept of climate migration, network members highlighted the role of poverty and political crises leading to civil wars as two key factors making people vulnerable. The Action also took the opportunity to show how they created a space for interdisciplinary debate and a culture of trust among researchers who did not share much common ground prior to their collaboration.
