Grow your innovative ideas and career with COST

Wednesday, 19 June 2019, 17:30-18:30, Networking area (Multi-purpose room 1)

Session Chair:
  • Ralph Stübner (COST Association, Belgium)

This networking reception is hosted by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology), a funding organisation for the creation of research and innovation networks, called COST Actions.
In an lively and participatory format the participants will learn how these networks do offer an open space for collaboration across Europe (and beyond) and thereby give impetus to research advancements and innovation. You will also hear from COST Action participants how COST impacted their careers.
The event will help create dialogues and thereby lay the basis for potential future connections and common projects, e.g. future COST Actions or other joint research projects.
Please note that the reception is on invitation only. More information is available at the COST booth in the EUCNC exhibition area.

The session will start with a short introduction to COST and the work of the COST Actions, esp. those related to field of 5G. The latter part will consist of short testimonials from researchers actively involved in running COST Actions.

This will be followed up by an invitation to the participants to present themselves and their research question in short pitches.

Early Career Investigators from running COST Actions will be invited to share their experiences of participating in a COST Action during the networking part.
