COST Association briefing on COVID-19

The COST Association are closely monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) and will continue to update COST Actions as the situation evolves.

Following the outbreak of coronavirus, now known as COVID-19, in December 2019, the COST Association have carefully monitored developments and followed the advice of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and other public ministries. The COST Association recognise that the COVID-19 outbreak has caused concern for participants involved in COST activities, particularly as to whether they should attend COST Action events, which are held in many countries and require international travel.

A dedicated page has been created by the COST Association, which can be found here
