COST Actions have been an excellent way of networking with other European scientists in my area.
They have led to a recent awarding of a Marie Curie European Joint Doctorate (REP-BIOTECH) to members of the Epiconcept and Gemini COST Actions.
This has been the question on social media over the last week and for good reason, the 11 February was the International day for Women and Girls in Science.
I would expect quite the opposite: to increase the budget and cover expenses that are not covered right now.
COST has been integral in creating new links/collaborations across Europe in fields different to my own.
Moreover, through COST, we have been able to offer Masters and Ph D students the opportunity to undertake internships in the UK with us.
We asked them about their experience starting out in the world of research, and what drove their careers forward.
The COST Action I am a member of had a huge, unquestionable impact on the field of quantum thermodynamics.
Reducing the budget at a time of fierce competition and social needs for impact and life improvement would put Europe at risk to lose its competitiveness.
