COST funds the creation of networks in all fields of science and technology, called COST Actions. COST Actions offer an open space for researchers/scientists across Europe and beyond, where they can exchange ideas, network and coordinate their research implemented at national level, leading consequently to further advancement and opportunities. COST’s funding comes from the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe, 2021-2027.
