A detailed description of the structure and dynamics of COST Actions can be found in the COST Vademecum. Here come some brief answers to several frequently asked questions:

-How can I join MUMIA Action?

The procedure depends on the location of the institution.

  1. If your country has already accepted the Memorandum of Understanding of the Action IC1002, but has not yet nominated its representatives (see Action's member page) then: contact your COST National Coordinator (CNC) who can officially nominate you as a representative of your country to the MC committee and inform the This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for your interest.

  2. If your country has not yet accepted the Memorandum of Understanding of the Action IC1002: Please explain your case to your COST National Coordinator (CNC) and inform the This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . The former may launch the participation of your country in the Action. Once done, the CNC can officially nominate you as a representative of your country to the MC committee.

COST encourages institutions from non-COST countries to participate in COST Actions following the bottom-up principle and if the Committee of Senior Officials (CSO) believes it to be of mutual benefit. The CSO approves on a case by case basis. In general researchers from non-COST countries institutions do not receive economic support from COST, but exceptions are possible.

  1. For the near-neighbouring countries up to two researchers from each country may be reimbursed for attending COST Actions meetings. Moreover, researchers from these countries are eligible to participate in other activities decided at the level of individual Actions (such as meetings, short-term scientific missions, training schools and conferences).

  2. In addition, COST set up reciprocal agreements with Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina. The financial contribution provided by COST for a European scientist travelling to such a country is a fixed grant of up to EUR 3 000 per visit for Australia and New Zealand and up to EUR 2 500 for Argentina and South Africa.

-How can I become Member of a Working Group of the Action IC1002?

Contact the Chair of the relative Working Group and express your interest. Information n Working Groups can be found here.

-How can I participate as an "invited expert" to specific events of the Action IC1002 (such as meetings of the MC, WG etc)?

Contact the Chair of the Action (directly, via a colleague from the Action or via the COST Office) and obtain the invitation to participate in a specific event of the Action.

-Am I eligible for reimbursement?

Eligible participants that can be reimbursed are:

  1. Management Committee Members (up to two representatives for each country)
  2. External speakers and invited experts if they are invited by the Management Committee, Domain Committee or the COST Office
