COST Action CA20104

ITC Conference Grants


ITC Conference Grant targets Young Researchers and Innovators that are affiliated in an Inclusiveness Target Country (ITC) or Near Neighbour Country (NNC) for their participation in high-level conferences. The aim of the Network on evidence-based physical activity in old age (CA20104) is to establish a sustainable network that will foster evidence-based research and practice of physical activity in older adults and will enhance the integration of innovative ICT solutions based on open data consolidated research information, in order to promote health and reduce the burden of inactivity in ageing populations. To achieve this goal, the involvement of PhD students and early career researchers is essential.

COST Inclusiveness Target Countries are Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Republic of Serbia and Turkey.

COST Near Neighbour Countries are Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Egypt, Jordan, Kosovo2, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine3, Syria, and Tunisia.
