European Cooperation in Science and Technology.

COST is an intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology which brings together researchers and experts in different countries working on specific topics (Biomedicine and Molecular Biosciences; Chemistry and Molecular Sciences and Technologies; Earth System Science and Environmental Management; Food and Agriculture; Forests, their Products and Services; Individuals, Society, Culture and Health; Information and Communication Technologies; Materials, Physical and Nanosciences; Transport and Urban Development).
Currently more than 200 scientific networks (Actions) are supported and a continuous Open Call for Proposals is used to attract the best proposals for new actions.

For the 2010 Call, proposals should include researchers from a minimum of five countries. 
Those initiated by early-stage researchers are especially welcome.
Financial support in the range of EUR 100,000 per year for normally four years can be expected. 

The Open Call follows a two-stage process.
After online registration on the website of the COST Office, candidates must submit a preliminary proposal for March 26, 2010.
Selected participants will then be invited to submit their full proposals before July 30, 2010.
