Submit your COST Action proposal
You can submit your COST Action proposal at any time throughout the year via the new e-COST online submission tool.
The next Collection Date is tentatively set for 1 December 2016, at 12:00 CET.
The Call is open to ideas in all fields of Science and Technology including Humanities and Social Sciences. Multi- and interdisciplinary proposals are encouraged.
COST invites proposals for Actions contributing to the scientific, technological, economic, cultural or societal knowledge advancement and development of Europe.
The set of COST Implementation Rules outlines procedures and conditions for participating in and setting up COST Actions.
The new Action Proposal Submission, Evaluation, Selection and Approval (SESA) procedure is fully science and technology-driven and will ensure a simple, transparent and competitive proposal evaluation and selection process, in line with the bottom-up, open and inclusive principles of COST.
Researchers benefit from a one-stage submission. The proposal requires filling in several sections via the new e-COST online submission tool as well as the Technical Annex of up to 15 pages, uploaded via the same tool.
