COVID-19 – Information for COST Actions 

We understand that this is a very difficult and worrying time for our community, as such we are monitoring developments closely and are committed to keeping our COVID-19 information for COST Actions regularly updated.

Recommendations to COST Actions:

The following measures have been recommended to COST Actions by the COST Association:

– The suspension of physical meetings
– The cancellation of Training schools and STSMs

Instead the following measures have been recommended:

– Video conferences
– The continuation of networking tools, including dissemination tools, that do not require physical meetings

A summary of useful online networking tools have been made available on our website. This page is being updated regularly with further suggestions from COST Actions.

Further information can be found on our dedicated COVID-19 page.


COST Actions join forces to tackle COVID-19

Since March, a number of COST Action Chairs have approached COST, wishing to set-up collaborative research networks to tackle COVID-19 or to address wider societal issues stemming from the pandemic. In response to these requests, COST is creating a list of Actions that have identified that they would like to connect with one another, as well as informing all running Actions of the initiative so they can participate if they would like to.

To reflect the diversity of specialisms within the COST community, all disciplines of research focus are warmly received, including amongst many others, social sciences, economics and climate change.

Any Actions wishing to be added to the list should contact Science Officer, Dominique Vandekerchove.

Please check back regularly for further updates.
