Short-Term Scientific Missions – These Inter-laboratory Exchange Visits aim for strengthening the existing COST Actions by allowing scientists to go to an institution or laboratory of another COST country to foster collaboration, to learn new techniques or to take measurements using instruments and/or methods not available in their own institution/laboratory.
COST Actions can share knowledge and support collaboration also through Training Schools. Training Schools can be organized by a COST Action on related research topics and can provide dissemination opportunities for an Action’s activities.
Meetings are organized by COST Action Management Committees in any COST country participating in the network. They can be of different types, such as Management Committee meetings, Working Group Meetings, Workshops and Conferences.
