Dear NewCompStar participants,
In context with Horizon 2020, the COST association deceided to set up a specific program to counterbalance research communities that have unequal access to knowledge infrastructures, funding, and resource distribution by appoining Inclusive Target Countries which are specially promoted.
The program is meant to encourage and enable researchers from less research-intensive countries across the COST Member Countries to set up and/or join COST Actions and get more intensively involved in all COST activities.
The Inclusive Target Countries are:
Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Republic of Serbia, Turkey, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Portugal and Luxemburg.
The COST Action NewCompStar thus strongy encourages all participants from Inclusive Target Countries to participate in our program (Working Group Meetings, Training School, Annual Conference), to apply to Short-Term Scientific Missions, or to organize a COST event.
