COST Action CA18218

Join the network

There are various opportunities to participate in the network for PhD students, early stage and senior researchers.

You can express your interest to join any of the working groups by applying via https://e-services.cost.eu/action/CA18218/working-groups/apply. We request all participants to select at least one "vertical" working group (NCDs, Communicable diseases, Risk factors) and at least one "horizontal" working group (Methods, Knowledge Translation).

It is required to have an e-COST profile to submit your application. If needed, you can create an e-cost account via https://e-services.cost.eu/user/registration/email.

Everyone is welcome to join the network. However, your eligibility for receiving financial support will depend on the country of your affiliation.
