The SEADDA COST Action can be joined at any time. As set out by the COST Association, there are several ways to participate in COST Actions:

As a Management Committee (MC) member

The MC is responsible for the coordination, implementation, and management of an Action. For each Action, up to two representatives per COST Member can be nominated to the MC. To participate as an MC, please contact the COST National Coordinator (CNC) of your country.

As a working group member

The working groups perform the tasks required by the Action to fulfil the objectives of the network project plan, as described in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). To participate as a working group member, please contact the Action’s working group leader and the MC member(s) from your country.

As a participant in Action activities

During their lifetime, Actions provide opportunities to get involved in activities through training schools, short-term scientific missions, workshops, conferences, etc. To participate in one of these, follow the offers on the website of the specific Action you are interested in.

On the COST webpage, search for the Action you are interested in: on each Action’s webpage, you will find contact details for the Chair, the working group leaders, the national MC members plus a link to the Action’s own website.

There are various steps to follow to participate in COST Actions, which depend on the location of the institution.

As a non-COST country participant
