Backround & content:
The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) is an EU-funded programme that enables researchers and innovators to set up their interdisciplinary research networks in Europe and beyond. It provides funds for organising meetings, workshops, training schools, short scientific exchanges, conference grants and other networking and dissemination activities across a wide range of scientific topics.
COST provides a unique way to jointly develop ideas and new initiatives across all science and technology fields, including social sciences and humanities. As a European intergovernmental framework, since its creation in 1971, it has been helping to bring together researchers and stakeholders from public and private institutions, NGOs, industry, SMEs, as well as policy-makers, across Europe and beyond, thereby playing a very important role in building the European Research Area (ERA).
Yet again, how much do we really know about the programme & its potential synergies with Horizon 2020?
As COST is set to be integrated in H-EU under the pillar Sharing Excellence, it is now even more worth our attention.
Have you ever wondered how we could better cooperate with colleagues outside Horizon 2020? How to make use of synergies, provide our clients with a fuller picture on European funding opportunities and explore further collaboration potential with our peers?
Take part in this webinar and get answers to all these questions!!
Participants will get
– a deeper understanding of the synergies between COST and Horizon 2020,
– empowered to identify potential cooperation opportunities as well as
– an outlook into the future of COST within H-EU.
Who should attend:
The webinar is open to all interested NCPs, who would like to learn more about potential synergies with the COST programme and think outside the ‘Horizon 2020’ box
The webinar also welcomes the participation of COST National Coordinators, members of the COST Committee of Senior Officials and basically everyone, who is interested in the complementarities between these two programmes.
