Cost is a European Network of Expertise comprising 161 members from 66 institutions.
There are 24 COST countries, 1 near neighbour country (Ukraine) and 1 country with a reciprocal agreement (Argentina).
The Management Committee of the Sustain Project is comprised of two representatives for each country signatory to the action. These representatives are nominated by the national COST coordinator.
Any researcher working in a field related to SUSTAIN from a country that is a signatory to the Action can participate in the activities of the SUSTAIN COST Action.
