Join us

Would you like to join our Action to share knowledge and learn new skills? Here are ways to collaborate and increase your knowledge in the field of religious diversity and migration interactions.


Meetings are organised by COST Action Management Committee (MC) in any COST Member State joining this network. Meetings can be of several types, such as MC meetings, working group meetings, workshops, and conferences. They may be open to the wider community and provide opportunities to enhance COST Action’s visibility. COST will contribute to the travel and subsistence costs of the invited participants, and to the cost of organising the meeting.

Training Schools

Training schools are intensive coaching opportunities for Action participants that last for up to 15 days. Training is organised on a topic of their choice and held on the premises of a participating institution or organisation. Young researchers typically benefit from the training school initiative, however, study opportunities can also be offered more widely within the Action and can be useful for participants wishing to learn new skills or retrain.

Short-term scientific missions STSM

Short-term scientific missions (STSM) are exchange visits for researchers within their Action. This exchange programme facilitates individuals to spend up to six months at an institution or laboratory-based in a different country, which is also part of the Action. Short-term scientific missions are great opportunities for researchers to share techniques and gain skills that may not be available at their home institution or laboratory.

Conference grants

Conference grants are aimed at young researchers and PhD students from Inclusive Target Countries (ITC) and help individuals attend beneficial international conferences that are not organised by COST Actions.
