Gender Equality Plan for COST Activities

2024

This Gender Equality Plan (GEP) aims to promote an inclusive culture and a gender dimension in any research carried out in COST Actions, and, where possible, on the additional activities for COST Actions organised by the COST Association.

This GEP will be a ‘living document’, which will allow for details to be developed, adjusted and updated over time.

For more than 50 years, COST has been providing networking opportunities for researchers and innovators to strengthen Europe’s capacity to address scientific, technological and societal challenges.

To continue as the leading networking instrument in the European Research Area (ERA), COST has defined three priorities: 1) Promoting and spreading excellence, 2) Fostering interdisciplinary research for breakthrough science, 3) Empowering and retaining young researchers and innovators.

The COST Strategic Plan defines clear targets and Key Performance Indicators for each strategic priority. Read the document to discover more.
