COST mission

The COST Mission was approved in 2018 by the decision-making body of the organisation, the Committee of Senior Officials (CSO), according to which:

COST provides networking opportunities for researchers and innovators in order to strengthen Europe’s capacity to address scientific, technological and societal challenges.

Our three strategic priorities:

Promoting and spreading excellence

Fostering interdisciplinary research for breakthrough science

Empowering and retaining young researchers and innovators

COST implements its mission by funding bottom-up, excellence-driven, open and inclusive networks for peaceful purposes in all areas of science and technology.
