On 25 May 2021, COST’s governing board, the Committee of Senior Officials (CSO), confirmed the funding of 40 new COST Actions, which will start in the Autumn of 2021.

43% of all Actions cover at least two OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) fields of science and technology, while 13% cover at least three fields, clearly highlighting the multidisciplinary of the new Actions.

This year, 45% of the main proposers are women.
