Management Committee (MC)

The Management Committee (MC) supervises and coordinates the implementation of the COST Action and makes executive decisions within the framework of COST guidelines. It normally meets twice per year and consists of up to two nominated representatives from each participating country although each country has one vote. The date of the first MC meeting (kick-off meeting) is the start date of the Action. During the kick-off meeting the MC elect the Chair, the Vice-chair, the two financial rapporteurs and the WG coordinators.

The MC choose the research topics on the basis of the MoU, draw up detailed plans, distribute tasks and define methods for the execution of the Action. The MC keep abreast of the research being done in each country and, when appropriate, liaise and interact with international bodies. It exchanges and disseminates research results, draw up the Annual Progress Report including also evaluations of the research carried out under the Action. Much of the activity of the Action is overseen by Working Groups. Each member of the Management Committee contributes to the activities of a Working Group.
