COST Actions are highly interdisciplinary and open, and this means that it gives the possibility for joining ongoing Actions. In particular, the COST Association places emphasis on actively supporting the inclusion of excellent researchers who, due to their age, gender or geographical location, experience difficulties in networking internationally.
Are you a researcher interested in the HyperChildNET COST Action?
There are different options to participate in. But firstly, you need to check whether you comply with a general condition for participating – you need to be affiliated with a university (or other types of academic and research institutions) located in a country that is a participating country of the HyperChildNET COST Action. The list of participating countries can be found on the COST website.
Below you can find out about a number of options to partake:
You can become a Working Group (WG) member. The HyperChildNET COST Action is organised into 5 Working Groups (WGs), each addressing a different area of research related to the overall objectives of the Action. You can learn more on the WGs in the “Working Groups” section. If you would like to become a member of one of these working groups, we invite you to consult here.
You can apply for a Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM). STSMs are research stays where a researcher from one participating country spends some time working with colleagues in another participating country. During an STSM, you should advance your skills and competencies in areas relevant to the COST Action and contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action.
You can join a Training School (TS). These trainings are organised on topics relevant to the Action. A number of grants supporting the participation of mainly young researchers and PhD students will be awarded.
