    Goals / Remit

    COST provides networking opportunities for researchers and innovators in order to strengthen Europe’s capacity to address scientific, technological and societal challenges.
    In order to achieve its mission, COST has three strategic priorities:
    - Promoting and spreading excellence
    - Fostering interdisciplinary research for breakthrough science
    - Empowering and retaining young researchers and innovators
    Through its inclusiveness policy, COST supports the integration of research communities, leverages national research investments and addresses issues of global relevance.

    COST is thus a building block of the European Research Area, instrumental for successful innovation strategies and global cooperation.

    Meetings

    8 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
