European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) – Open Call

Open Call: A simple one-step application process

The next collection date is 5 September 2019 at 12:00 noon (CET).

Two collection dates will take place in 2020 (Spring and Autumn).

The Open Call 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, reflecting the bottom-up, open and inclusive principles of COST.

Participants planning to submit a proposal for a COST Action will need to refer to the SESA guidelines on the Documents and Guidelines page.

The results of the first 2018 collection were announced in November 2018, while the results of the second 2018 collection will be published in June 2019.
