COST presents its new Open Call at physics workshop in Sofia

In November 2014, COST participated in a workshop initiated by the Southeastern European Network for Mathematical and Theoretical Physics (SEENET-MTP Network) in Sofia, Bulgaria.

COST Association Science Officer Dr María Moragues Cánovas presented the new structure of the Open Call and highlighted all other possibilities of participating in COST Actions. She also highlighted the COST Inclusiveness Policy, aiming to actively engage scientists from less connected research communities, young investigators and women in science, with their peers. 

It was the second workshop  organised in the frame of a larger European initiative, aimed at integrating the Central and Eastern European physics community into the European Research Area.

To achieve this goal, the workshop itself targeted a strategic partnership between leading scientific institutions and researchers from Central, Eastern and Western European countries. Scientists, EU officials, science policy experts and SEENET-MTP Network partners discussed networking opportunities and future collaborations for research projects benefiting from Horizon 2020 or similar funding schemes.
