COST is a European network organisation of which most of the countries in Europe (including Norway and all the EU-nations) are members. An important task for COST is to improve European research cooperation by initiating scientific networks (called “COST-actions”).
General information about COST you can find here (in Norwegian) and here.
Summaries about the COST-actions you can find here.
The Norwegian Research Council is coordinating the process concerning the Norwegian participation in COST-actions. If you are interested send this form to Hans Hellebostad.
