Maximum ½ page – up to 500 words

  • Give a clear picture of the timescale of the Action and an explicit estimate of the total duration of the Action, preferably in the first paragraph. (This estimate will be quoted in the Memorandum proper and will determine the period for which the MoU enters into force.)
  • Bear in mind that the normal duration of a COST Action is normally four years, unless there are specific cases to be approved by the CSO, on the basis of a justification provided in the proposal.
  • Use relative time scales (Year 1, Year 2, etc) rather than specific years.
