COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) in H2020
COST mission is to enable breakthrough scientific and technological developments leading to new concepts and products. COST has been supporting the networking of research activities across all 35 Member Countries and beyond for over 40 years.
In H2020 COST will continue to follow the basic principles that made it a success since its foundation: excellence, openness, inclusiveness and bottom up. In 2013, the COST member states established a new implementing structure, the COST Association that will allow an even more efficient and research friendly management. Currently there is a scientific re-organization on going and a new submission, evaluation & selection procedure is being discussed. COST will reinforce its policies in the H2020 context allowing contributing to the Innovation Union’s goal.
