COST Awareness Day for the Near Neighbour Countries’ research communities

08 Mars 2021

We are happy to inform all Kosovo researches and innovators community for COST Awareness Days that is organized by COST!
The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) is a funding organisation for the creation of research networks, called COST Actions. These networks offer an open space for collaboration among scientists across Europe (and beyond) and thereby give impetus to research
advancements and innovation.
The Ministry of Education and Science in the Republic of Kosovo highly recommend you to participate in this event! We encourage your Institutions to share this event with your researchers, innovators, academic staff, business community and all relevant stakeholders!
COST Awareness Days provide information and networking opportunities for researchers and innovators, as well as offering practical advice on how to
participate in and propose COST Actions. This is an open event and all interested can participate.
The 2-hour event is designed to explain the rationale of the COST Programme and participation options in COST Actions.
