COST spotlight – COST Actions on Networks and Communication

Thursday, 21 June 2018, 09:00-10:30, E4 hall
Session Chair:
  • Ralph Stübner (COST Office, BE)

Selected COST Actions present their work dealing with topics related to 5G and beyond.
These COST Actions are open networks of researchers in Europe and beyond working on their subject of interest over a duration of 4 years, thus deepening the collaboration and enabling synergies between nationally and internationally funded research projects in the field. Often they lay the basis for new research projects in their field, advance the career of the involved researchers and contribute to standardisation and/or policy decision processes.

This special session will highlight the aim and research work of some selected starting, running and ended Actions. It will enable and deepen the exchange between those researchers engaged in the COST Actions and the audience of the session. In addition, the audience will be advised on how to create or to join existing COST Actions.

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation (www.cost.eu).
