The Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) will be organizing an info session on COST, Co-operation in Science and Technology


The Information session will be held on Friday 18th May 2018 at 8:30am at Esplora, Activity Centre Level 0, Kalkara.


COST is the networking mechanism by which researchers can gain excellent networking exposure with colleagues working in same areas across Europe. It is administratively extremely simple and inclusive. Each EU country can be represented on a COST action by means of two members, making it an added advantage to researchers based in Malta. Over 80 new actions are approved each year and in the last 6 years over 400 researchers in Malta have begun to benefit from COST participation. The huge advantages of participating in COST, both to academics as well as to SMEs, industry and public entities will be highlighted during the information session.


The session will address academics from University, MCAST and other higher educational and research institutions as well as focus on the benefits for industry, SMEs, employers and public entities. COST is an instrument that aims to include all stakeholders, not only academics, as research and innovation affects all sectors.


Participants are asked to complete the enclosed registration form and send it to Dr Melchior Cini at by noon on 10 May 2018.


Places are limited and confirmation will be given on a first come first served basis. Looking forward to seeing you there.
