This page has been created to collect together the potential sources of funding for research, equipment and facilities, and associated travel and subsistence for presenting work at conferences and exhibitions etc.


COST

COST is an intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology, allowing the coordination of nationally-funded research on a European level.

"What does COST fund? The support will cover the costs of networking activities such as meetings (e.g. travel, subsistence, local organiser support), conferences, workshops, short-term scientific exchanges, training schools, publications and dissemination activities. COST does not fund the research itself."
