Become an external expert

Call for COST external experts

We invite experts from all scientific areas to participate in the evaluation of proposals for COST Actions collected once a year through the COST Open Call.

By being available for occasional, short-term assignments, you will contribute to fair, inclusive and fully transparent scientific project assessment at European level.

A COST external expert must not necessarily belong to academic institutions. However, a university degree and considerable scientific or professional experience in the specific areas of expertise are a requirement.

Experts coming from non-COST countries are also welcome.

Why become a COST expert?

As a COST external expert, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Contribute to the evaluation of COST Open Call proposals.

  • Gain insight into the latest scientific and technological developments put forward by COST scientific communities.
  • Build on your reputation in the research community through the recognition of your role as a COST expert.
