Cost call for proposals for cooperation in the field of research

COST (European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research) has launched a call for proposals on actions contributing to the scientific, technological, economic, cultural or societal development in Europe. Proposals playing a precursor role for other European programmes and/or initiated by early-stage researchers are especially welcome.

COST is organised in nine broad domains (biomedicine and molecular biosciences; chemistry and molecular sciences and technologies; earth system science and environmental management; food and agriculture; forests, their products and services; individuals, society, culture and health; information and communication technologies; materials, physical and nanosciences; transport and urban development).

Proposers are invited to locate their topic within one domain. However, inter-disciplinary proposals not fitting readily into a single domain are particularly welcome and will be assessed separately.

COST does not itself fund research, but supports networking activities such as meetings, conferences, short-term scientific exchanges and outreach activities. It receives financial support for its coordinating activities under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

To see the full details of the call, please consult the following web address:

The deadline for submitting preliminary proposals is 27 March 2009.
