Grant Holders

Grant Holder workshops

Grant Holder Workshops guide the new COST Action Grant Holder Managers on the COST financial rules, and the use of e-COST, the online management tool of COST. The workshops offer hands-on training for the COST Action Grant Holder Managers within the COST Association premises whenever possible. An e-learning platform was established to further Grant Holder Managers even after the Workshop .

COST will invite the newly- appointed Grant Holder Managers to participate in the workshops after the first Management Committee meeting.

Grant Holder seminars

These Seminars gather COST Action Grant Holder Managers together to learn from each other and to share their experiences and best practices, give feedback and questions on managing the administrative side of the COST grants.

COST will invite running Actions’ Grant Holder Managers to the seminar based on selection performed by the COST Administration. If you are interested in participating, please contact

Grant Holder Forums

These Forums aim to bring together Grant Holder Managers coming from one country to exchange experience, and to discuss within these parameters: country and institution-based situations they face when managing a COST grant..

The forum gives them the opportunity to meet other Grant Holder Managers and compare best practice in order to successfully manage the COST grant.

Online learning library

COST has built an online learning library for Action Grant Holder Managers, which gathers all materials that we consider valuable for administrating your COST Action. The purpose of this learning library is to facilitate the access to the various materials of past events that have been prepared over the last year, like Seminars, Forums, Webinars, and it also includes e-learning materials such as claim submission from A to Z and e-COST start up guide. In this library Grant Holder Managers can also have access to Grant Holder Managers Community, which has been created for the Grant Holder Manager’s interaction through written posts and comments.

You can login to the online learning library here. If you haven’t received your login yet, please contact your Administrative officer.
