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.
Choose a country in the list below for an overview of the Country National Coordinators (CNC), Action participation and Action Chairs for each Member. A full list of all CSO delegates is available here.
The 38 COST Members are: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, The Netherlands, The Republic of North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom.
Israel is a Cooperating Member. A Cooperating Member implies non-voting rights in the COST CSO. However, researchers from COST’s Cooperating Member enjoy member rights in COST Action participation.
South Africa is a Partner Member. A Partner Member implies no rights to attend the COST CSO. However, researchers from COST’s Partner Members enjoy observer rights in COST Action participation.
