HE Navigators MeetUp – COST Info Session

April 12 09:30 11:30

We would like to invite you to the next Horizon Navigators MeetUp , which this time will take place on 12 April and will focus on the COST Programme.

During the meeting you will learn about the COST Programme, which involves the research community from 41 COST member countries plus Israel and South Africa. It is a large networking initiative bringing together scientists from all disciplines working together in research networks – the so-called COST Actions. They are organised on a bottom-up basis by researchers proposing a topic they want to investigate and in which they want to exchange experience.

In practice, COST Actions are workshops and conferences, training courses and short-term scientific missions. Being part of a COST Action is considered a passport to scientific development and winning international projects.

The meeting will feature representatives from the COST Association, the Polish COST Programme Coordinator and two researchers who will share their experiences of being involved in COST Actions and its impact on their scientific careers. We hope that the success stories will inspire the PAN community.

The meeting is open to PAS Institutes research administrative personnel, researchers and science directors. We encourage your active participation!

V4 Conference on Research Infrastructures


18 April 2024, Hotel Renaissance, Brussels

The theme of this year’s joint #V4Conference is Research Infrastructures. A number of intervening European research infrastructures (RIs), both well-established and emerging, are operating in the four Visegrad countries. The aim of the event and its accompanying discussions is to look at these examples and provide a platform for debate led by speakers coming from different countries and involved in RIs in different ways. The event is organised by the R+I support offices in Brussels (CZELO, SLORD, PolSCA, NRDIO).

The conference will enable networking among the gathered stakeholders, facilitating debate between the interested parties from the Brussels community, EU bodies and Member State representations, and the researchers themselves who use a range of different European research infrastructures. Taking into account the EU Council Conclusions on Research Infrastructures, the event will discuss, among other things, calls for Member States to ensure the long-term sustainability and digital strengthening of their research infrastructures.
