What is ENOVAT?
The European Network for Optimization of Veterinary Antimicrobial Treatment (ENOVAT) aims to optimize veterinary antimicrobial use with special emphasis on the development of animal- and disease-specific antimicrobial treatment guidelines and refinement of microbiological diagnostic procedures.

Why choose IT as a field
In this short video, EUGAIN are showing you some reasons why it is a great idea to choose IT as a field of study and work. The main aim of this COST Action is to improve gender balance in Informatics through the creation and strengthening of a truly multi-cultural European network of academics working on the forefront of the efforts in their countries, institutions and research communities.
Glycoscience studies the biological roles of carbohydrates and how they can be used in treatment and diagnosis of diseases, to prevent infections and prepare new functional smart materials. COST Action Functional Glyconanomaterials for the Development of Diagnostics and Targeted Therapeutic Probes (GLYCONanoPROBES) brings together glycoscientists across Europe promoting collaboration, knowledge transfer and training for early career stage researchers.
Cognitive decline in Nephro-Neurology with CONNECT COST Action
The aim of this animation is to increase awareness of general public about the relation between kidney and brain and how kidney diseases cause cognitive decline.
Language In The Human-Machine Era
Chair of LITHME Dave Sayers talks about new language technologies, like Augmented Reality for real-time translation of voice (audio) and mouth movement (video) combined in wearable devices. These devices are in prototype now, set for widespread adoption soon, and they will radically change how we communicate with each other, and with machines. For more details on these new technologies and their likely effects on language, see the LITHME forecast report: https://jyx.jyu.fi/handle/123456789/75737
What is PhysAgeNet?
A sedentary lifestyle in old age is associated with increased risk of chronic and disabling diseases, premature mortality, and substantial economic burden for society. Increase in physical activity (PA), on the other hand, may compensate negative effects of ageing and reduce inactivity costs. However, not all exercise regimens are universally effective, and inter-individual differences in responses to PA exist. Therefore, there is an urgent need for creating “tailored” exercise programmes that will fit the specific needs of the various and diverse ageing populations.
The main aim of the COST Action PhysAgeNet is to establish a sustainable network that will foster evidence-based research and practice of physical activity in older adults and will enhance integration of innovative ICT solutions based on open data consolidated research information, in order to promote health and reduce the burden of inactivity in ageing populations.
A story of survivors
COST Action ConservePlants tell us a story to raise society awareness about the need and the importance of conserving threatened plants. The focus is on the evolutionary history of some plants that have their origin in the Tertiary (several million years ago), and have been able to overcome the glacial periods that covered the northern hemisphere with ice, thanks to some adaptations that make them very peculiar and exclusive plants.
Identifying, understanding and measuring the factors/determinants which promote, maintain or inhibit Physical Activity Behaviours (PABs) across the lifespan and in different settings and translating this knowledge to assist policy-makers to achieve greater health impact.
