Becoming a Participant
COST Actions are governed by a Management Committee (MC).
Each COST country can nominate up to 2 representatives on this committee, and up to 2 substitutes.
If when looking at the MC of BM1005 you find out that the country of the institution you are affiliated with is not yet or not fully represented in the MC, please introduce yourself to the Chair/Vice Chair of the Action and express your interest to participate.
You will also need to do one of the following:
- If your country is not represented at all in the MC, you need to contact the COST National Coordinator (CNC) for your country and inquire about joining the MC of the Action. After 1/12/2011, the participation of your country will also need to be approved by our MC before you can officially participate.
- If your country is already part of the Action, but there are still available slots for MC Members or MC Substitutes, you need to contact your CNC and inquire about the national procedure to be nominated as MC Member/Substitute.
MC membership enables you to take part in the policy decisions (scientific and other) made regarding the Action as well as to be reimbursed by the Action when participating to its activities (a Substitute may participate and be reimbursed only in case one of the Members is unable to attend).
