Virtual Mobility Grants

Virtual Networking Tools

Virtual Networking Tools (VNTs) have been introduced by COST in April 2021. This project will run as a pilot until 31 October 2021. Virtual Mobility (VM) Grants aim at strengthening the existing networks by allowing the GYNOCARE COST participants to foster collaboration in a virtual setting, to exchange knowledge, learn new techniques, disseminate the Action results, etc.
A maximum of six VM Grants per Action will be funded (up to 1,500 EUR per grant, max 9,000 EUR). COST Action GYNOCARE re-allocated the budget to provide the funds for the VM Grants. A Virtual Mobility Strategy has been drawn out by the Action Chair and VNS manager of the GYNOCARE COST Action, to refect the aims and deliverables of this COST Action.


  • Applicant(s) are Action participants with a primary affiliation to an institution located in a COST Full or Cooperating Member country or MC Observers from a COST Near Neighbour Country.
  • The applicant(s) shall inform the MC about the aim of the VM Grant and how its outcomes will generate benefits to the Action, actively contribute to the activities and overall objectives of the Action and submit a report at the end, to be approved by the Virtual Networking Support (VNS) manager on behalf of the MC.
  • The evaluation of each received VM grant application is performed by the  VNS Manager together with the Action Vice-chair.
  • The selection of successful grantee shall be based on contributions to the overall objectives of the Action as per Memorandum of Understanding, COST policy, and the approved strategy on the virtual networking for the Action and the implementation of the COST Excellence and Inclusiveness Policy.
