COST Open Call: 6 months to go


The countdown has officially started, our Open Call 2023 for new COST Action proposals closes in six months on 25 October 2023 at 12.00 (noon) CEST.

A COST Action is an interdisciplinary research network that brings researchers and innovators together to investigate a topic for 4 years. Open to all science and technology fields, including new and emerging ones, COST Actions are also are bottom-up meaning you can propose a network based on your own interests or ideas. The funding a COST Action receives covers the expenses of networking activities and can be used to fund events, Short-Term Scientific Missions, Training Schools, communication activities, and virtual networking tools.

“If you have an idea, if you have a network, you can apply. This is a good opportunity for scientists to broaden their work and promote it to the public and other stakeholders. This gives you the opportunity to go out from your lab and show the public what you are doing with their money.”

Dr Karim Benabdellah, Main Proposer and Chair of COST Action GenE-Humdi

COST Actions are the ideal platform to collaborate with experts from diverse fields, backgrounds, and countries to advance science and technology, grow your professional research network, and boost your career. So, are you ready to turn your innovative ideas into reality? There is still plenty of time to build a network proposal before the deadline!
