News archive - COST Open Call: Next Collection Date Coming Up In September

COST invites researchers throughout Europe to submit proposals for research networks and use this unique opportunity to exchange knowledge and to embark on new European perspectives. A continuous Open Call for Proposals is used to attract the best proposals for new COST Actions.

Next collection date: September 24, 2010, 17:00 CET.

The Open Call follows a two-stage process whereby applicants, after registering, submit a preliminary proposal by a set collection date. This preliminary proposal provides an overview of proposed Action's goal and its foreseen impact. After assessment, approximately 80 of these preliminary proposals are selected for the second phase. Successful applicants are then invited to submit a full proposal.


Only the institutions of the 36 COST countries can propose an action. The following WBC are cost member countries at the moment: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
