October 1, 2019, marked the start of the Action. Management Committee Members from 26 participating countries attended the 1st COST Meeting and made important decisions on the future of the Action. During the day we had the opportunity to learn about COST and to discuss with the other MC members. The MC members were asked to actively engage and contribute to the meeting.
What do you want to achieve in this COST Action and what can we use to achieve it? In this part of the meeting, the MC members were asked to have in mind the objectives of the COST and the activities of networking that the COST Action aims to prmote (e.g. Short Term Scientific Missions and Training Schools).
