COST is an intergovernmental framework consisting of 38 Members, 1 Cooperating Member and 1 Partner Member. The 38 COST Member countries govern COST via their representatives in the COST Committee of Senior Officials (CSO) – the General Assembly of the COST Association.
This allows researchers from these countries to embark upon networking opportunities by participating in science and technology networks called COST Actions.
